The Bury Volunteer Police Cadet Unit have found a home at Bury College and believes their recent award for Voluntary Police Cadet Unit of the Year has been helped by Bury College’s facilities and our staff.
Bury College is a growing campus, with several centres housing a range of specialist facilities. Our brand-new and purpose-built Health and Digital Centre is giving students access to everything they need to train for the future. The new £9+ million centre includes:
- State-of-the-art laboratory
- Simulated hospital ward
- Replicated domestic home
- Immersive digital environment
- Esports suite
- Advanced IT facilities
It’s the home to a range of exciting courses, from advanced to degree level, including those leading to jobs in Health and Nursing, Computing and Digital. The various programmes include T Levels and a brand new Esports course from September 2023.
Learning is hands-on and industry-led, allowing students to gain the qualifications needed to springboard them into their careers. The centre is starting to play a major part in training the professionals of the future and providing an opportunity for them to find employment in some dynamic sectors.
It was delivered by H.H. Smith & Sons Co. Ltd and has been welcoming students since January 2023.
The Health and Digital Centre is funded with support from Greater Manchester Combined Authority, the Department for Education and Bury College.
