Carlisle College Opens New Building



Posted: April 26th, 2012

Today I had the pleasure of attending the official opening of the new College building by Sir George Sweeney.

It was back in 2003 when Sir George Sweeney, who was principal of Knowsley Community College was invited to kick-start changes at the College.  Since then the College chiefs secured funding from the North West Development Agency and Cumbria County Council which resulted in the amazing transformation of the out of date 1950’s buildings to what I saw today.

After canapés and a glass of wine we had a tour of this fantastic new building, which is much more suited for modern education and includes a new wing that houses a learning resource centre and workshops.

It’s great to see more money being invested into education in our region and the facilities will be a great asset to the community by giving youngsters more opportunities for a brighter future.

Well done Moira.
