The two storey centre will be equipped with cutting-edge technology and spaces, such as Virtual Reality (VR) suites, robotics and coding labs, a media suite and a practical healthcare learning space.

The centre will also introduce new courses, such as T Levels and A Levels in digital and health-related subjects. The project is part of Cadbury College’s vision to support as many young people as possible who aspire to enter careers in advanced manufacturing, life sciences and other critical sectors of the economy.

Julia Stevens, Principal of Cadbury Sixth Form College, said: “We’re thrilled to open the doors to our new STEM Centre this month, giving local students more choices and chances to study in state-of-the-art facilities.

“The new building will allow students to get hands on and see what the industry looks like, preparing them for life after college - whether that be for university or straight into employment. By providing specialist teaching facilities in growth areas such as advanced manufacturing and life sciences, the new STEM Centre will be a huge asset to the wider community and the regional economy.”
