LEARNING in Rotherham is on the up thanks to the opening of a new technology centre called The Curve.
The City Learning Centre in Rawmarsh will be used by hundreds of pupils, teachers and adults from across the north of the town.
The new look complex now includes a large studio which is perfect for film, photography and animation, a digital recording studio and a 12 unit ICT suite.
The facilities will match industry standard learning environments commonly now found in the media and creative industries.
Rotherham Council gave £600,000 to the project, the centre found £200,000 itself while £60,000 came from Rawmarsh Community School.
Mayor of Rotherham Coun Shaun Wright officially opened the centre and said it would build on the success of its predecessor.
“Making learning opportunities available to our young people and the wider community is the key to ensuring we can meet the needs of the future economy,” he added.
