The recent redevelopment of Witney campus has provided students with brand new learning areas, specialist industry zones, and student social areas that enhance College life.
The new facilities include fully functioning TV and radio studios, multi editing suites, two beauty salons, two hairdressing salons, art and design studios, science laboratories, a library and new student social areas. The campuses TV studio is also home to, ‘That’s Oxford’, a local TV station. A new Construction Skills Centre has been built on-site which coincides with the launch of brand new construction Apprenticeships.
The final phase of construction work is the replacement of the Old Court House building on Welch Way, which should be completed in October 2015. This will result in a new reception area and 16 new classrooms. The ground floor will house new purpose built facilities for students with profound and multiple learning disabilities. A number of other buildings have also been refurbished on this campus.
At our Witney campus our facilities include:
We have broadcast-quality media studios and a state of the art film production unit on the Witney site with industry standard equipment that our students will find when they work in the industry.
Our specialist vocational workshop areas provide a working and study environment for our students that reflects the industry. For example, our practical Media rooms are equipped with everything you would expect to find in a radio station, TV studio or editing suite so that our students are familiar with the environment and tools they’ll use when they move onto employment. We also have vocational science laboratories, a dedicated Hair & Beauty Salon and we’re currently developing our construction facilities to ensure we are up-to-date with industry standard facilities.
Art & Design Studios
Specialist fully equipped photography and art & design studios lead to inspirational work from our students that we display to the public on a regular basis in our purpose built art gallery.
Professional Hair & Beauty Salons
Our salons are not only a fantastic learning environment, but are also open to the public for various treatments. Our students are able to learn in an actual public facing salon and will learn how to portray themselves in a professional working environment. All treatments are carried out in our professionally assigned Hair and Beauty salons, supervised by our highly trained and experienced members of staff. Our aim is to provide training for Beauty Therapists and Hair Stylists of the future.
