New hospital suite teaching facility opens

As part of National T Level Week, the College was delighted to officially open our exciting new T Level Health teaching facility, that includes a purpose-built hospital ward and observations rooms, enabled by funding secured from the Department of Education.

This amazing new space will enable students on the course to study and develop new skills in a real-life environment, with a wide range of specialist equipment and teaching. 

The College was delighted to welcome special guests Eamonn O’Sullivan MBE (Chief Nurse at the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust) and the Mayor of Henley, Michelle Thomas, who cut the red ribbon, formally opening the facility. Also attending were Governors, local press, college staff, and students who are in their first term of the course. 

“It was a great opening event, and it felt great to receive such positive encouragement. We have a long way to go in terms of qualifying our students, but today set out a pathway and highlighted to us all how lucky we are to have such a brilliant space and amazing supportive people.” Suzi King, T Level Health Teacher 

T Level Health is highly valued by major employers such as the NHS and the social care sector as students can be immediately employed after college. It is a 2-year programme during which students develop the core knowledge and skills that are needed for entry to a range of health occupations. 

From September 2023, the College will be extending our offering to include T Levels in Engineering, IT and Business.
