Sheffield College upgrade given green light

Have your say

The extension of two Sheffield College campuses can begin after multi-million pound plans were agreed.

Proposals to make more space at Hillsborough College - with the aim of making young people more employable in the performing arts industries – and to create an engineering centre at Olive Grove Road in Heeley were agreed yesterday by Sheffield Council.

New courses and better facilities, will be available for students as part of the £15.6 million upgrade.

But it also means that the college’s Norton College campus will close in summer 2015.

Staff, students and courses will transfer to other campuses.
