Students get first glimpse of pioneering new business inspired college
Future North Somerset Enterprise and Technology College (NSETC) students got a glimpse of their new £11million college recently.
Students toured the site on Weston College’s South West Skills Campus, where the pioneering new business college is being built.
The site is being leased from Weston College and will be home for the NSETC for the academic year 2014-15.
Midas Construction is developing the state-of-the-art new centre for Weston College on the site of a former shoe factory in Weston-super-Mare.
The students and their parents joined site manager, Kevin Curtis alongside NSETC principal Tony Wilson for the tour.
Tony Wilson, Principal at NSETC comments: “It was an excellent opportunity for students who have applied to NSETC to see for themselves the superb learning environment that awaits them in September.
“I was really struck by how the prospect of learning in a brand new cutting edge designed building is already inspiring and motivating these young people.”
Following this first year the NSETC will open in a landmark building on the new Weston Business Quarter in Locking, adjacent to the new roundabout by the Helicopter Museum and close to junction 21 of the M5.
It will then welcome an additional intake of 100 students in year 10 in September 2015.
