Industry Facilities at Braintree

The new facilities demonstrate a new approach for the campus and how it best serves its learners, the local economy, community and employers. The courses on offer at our Braintree campus focus on skills priority areas for Essex. These include Technology, Engineering, Construction, Business and Media. By putting the focus on practise and proficiency, the campus ensures students are equipped with the hands-on experience they’ll need in the future.

The campus houses its own library with a wide range of material available to support students with their studies. Our new on-site refectory allows students to purchase refreshments or enjoy some down-time with friends.

CI Salons at Braintree offer fantastic beauty therapy services at very competitive prices and all services are carried out by students under the guidance and supervision of experienced lecturers.

High-tech workshops, replica industrial facilities, large classrooms and state-of-the-art equipment come together to form the £5.6m Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Innovation Centre. Opened in September 2017, the centre provides training opportunities in construction and trades, engineering processes, digital media and manufacturing.

Our state-of-the-art workshops, classrooms and high-tech equipment provide students with the skills needed to succeed in the modern workplace.

The new Learning and Technology Centre will provide students with the very best facilities to support them throughout their studies. Under expert guidance, students will learn new techniques and methods as they become more adept in their new skills. The new Centre will focus on high-tech IT and digital media facilities with new flexible learning spaces, workshops and computer suites.

Significant investment has been made in the latest technologies – which include a universal steel shearing machine, CNC plasma cutter, virtual reality headsets and much, much more – with a large proportion of equipment identical to that used by industry professionals on a daily basis. With the new cutting-edge equipment, we will continue to provide skilled, highly employable candidates into local and national industries.

Keeping Track of Developments!
