The Learning and Technology Centre

A recent addition to Braintree Campus, the new Learning and Technology Centre complements the existing high-tech STEM Innovation Centre with advanced facilities and leading-edge design. Students use the centre to develop the skills needed for the modern workplace and are provided opportunities to access first-class training in preparation for the career path they choose.

Students value the vibrant and welcoming environment where they can work with industry-standard equipment and learn from knowledgeable tutors.

Learning resources in this centre include:

  • A multimedia studio for live broadcasting, featuring industry-level cameras, auto-cue system, green screen, remote lighting and wireless mics
  • Computing and IT suites, including a programming lab to create mobile apps and games, and a hardware lab where students can build and understand networks
  • A dedicated CAD suite with drawing and design software for students training in engineering and manufacturing
  • A carpentry and joinery practical workshop with new tools and machinery, offering a real on-site working experience
  • Flexible learning spaces for business and early years students, along with multi-purpose rooms for larger training activities

“We’ve got live 4K Digital broadcasting in the studio as well as on location. We are lucky enough to be one of the only colleges in East Anglia that has a professional working studio, with equipment most universities haven’t got.”
