New Teaching Centre At Addenbrooke's

15 July 2010, 06:00

A new learning centre, costing £6 million, is to be built at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

Secondary school students will be taught a new national diploma there, designed to prepare them for a career in healthcare.

The Society, Health and Development diploma will be taught by teachers from Cambridge Regional College.

The project is a joint venture between CRC, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Cambridgeshire County Council.

Construction work on the building, which will be built on the Cambridge Biomedical campus close to the main hospital, is expected to start this autumn.

It's hoped the first 150 students will use the building from autumn 2011.

Pam Byrd, the head of CRC’s Care, Health and Early Years Academy, said: "This is a major new development which will provide an inspiring learning centre for students who want to develop a career in the health and care sector. 

Its position, right in the centre of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, will also bring considerable benefits to the students."

The building will be funded by a Government grant delivered through Cambridgeshire County Council.
