Come and see our amazing learning environment

Did you know that we have four Realistic Work Environments, which re-create the setting and atmosphere you would find in an actual workplace? They are our Annie Gill Coffee Bar, Cristory’s Restaurant, Synnova Hair & Beauty Salon and Little Explorers Nursery.

These areas are fully equipped with tools, machinery and technology used by industry, and our students are trained in these spaces to practice skills needed for employment.

When you come by our campus on Information Morning, why not take a tour of our campus to see these amazing learning spaces for yourselves?
