With a £47 million new campus Furness College offers a superb range of services and room hire opportunities.
Our new multi-million-pound campus houses world-class facilities including brand new learning suites complete with the latest technology, equipment for all vocational areas as well as higher education and business training, student social areas and a new restaurant and spa suite. The campus now houses the first dedicated centre for Higher Education delivery in Barrow with a contribution of £3.5million from the University of Cumbria.
Also included are a new virtual nursery, complete with virtual babies, to support the early Years and Education curriculum to the state of the art apple i-Mac suite that will enable multimedia graphics to be designed on industry standard hardware and software. A clinical suite is also included in the new facilities, where nurse trainees, and health and social care students can experience the surroundings of a hospital ward.
We have our very own radio station, Cando FM, which is also based in the i-Box and has its own broadcast studio which is right next to the video production and creative media studio.
By far the most exciting set of developments on the site is a full range of sports facilities, a new fully equipped fitness suite which boasts the full range of equipment that you expect to see in a modern commercial fitness club, Sports Hall (The Match Box) and 3G pitch.
The latest addition to our facilities is the £4 million pound engineering and technological training facility. The Advanced Manufacturing and Technology Centre (AMTC) is to service the demand for skills training, supporting advanced manufacturing, linked to the growth of major companies in the area and the supply chain. The centre us set to be completed by the end of July.
