A world -class new building that reflects our ambition and commitment to 21st century learning. The home of the Medway UTC will be specially constructed selfcontained new build at the rapidly developing Chatham Waters regeneration site in north Gillingham. The £12 million building and fitting out costs are being met by the Education Funding Agency, as an important part of the Government’s school reforms that are being made through the national University Technical College initiative that aims to make a vital contribution to raising education standards, as well as preparing young people for a career in technology. The building will be fully equipped with state of the art facilities to enable and enhance the ‘learning by doing’ approach to delivering the ‘engineering’ and ‘construction’ focus of the UTC. These facilities have been carefully developed in close collaboration with our employer sponsors. This approach will also be exemplified by the internals of the facility itself, with them being particularly designed to create a live learning laboratory to enable students to understand the construction and engineering, and operational features of a state of the art, environmentally friendly building. The internals of the building have also been designed to create a business-like environment, in keeping with the ethos and focus of the UTC. When fully operational the UTC will house 600 students. The building will be fully ICT enabled to permit students to mirror industry practice, as well as enhancing their own learning. The UTC will be well serviced by public transport from around the Medway region and beyond, including main train stations, which will also be enhanced by the provision of a new service to the UTC from Chatham bus station (near to Chatham train station) to the UTC, via Chatham Maritime.
