New town centre A-level course gives students a taste of multi-million pound learning hub

The Maths, Digital and Enterprise Hub, which will be kitted out with the latest digital learning technology, is a collaboration between the college, Telford & Wrekin Council, and other partners, and will have close links to the business community.

Councillor Shirley Reynolds, Cabinet Member for Children, Young People, Education and Lifelong Learning said: “The investment we’re making in Telford’s Station Quarter as part of a successful Town’s Fund bid will open up huge opportunities for young people in our borough and further afield. 

The plans for the new hub are ambitious and it’s great to see learners getting a taste of what they can expect in the course at Addenbrooke House.”

Telford College principal and chief executive Graham Guest said: “Maths and digital qualifications are a vital pathway to higher quality and better paid career opportunities for the people of Telford, which is why this new hub is so important.

“The future of education needs to be built around imaginative and creative collaboration and we are keen to work closely with partners across the business, school and local government sectors”.

17-year-old Joshua Tibbetts, a former Telford Langley School student from Dawley, as enjoyed studying at Addenbrooke House.

He said: “The town centre location was really easy to access. It’s closer to where I live, and it opens up the college to more people. I can see Addenbrooke House appealing to more people as a place to study A Levels.”

Joshua is hoping to study maths at one of the Russell Group universities when his Telford College A levels are complete.

Telford College principal and chief executive Graham Guest said: “Maths and digital qualifications are a vital pathway to higher quality and better paid career opportunities for the people of Telford, which is why this new hub is so important.
