Buckinghamshire University Technical College is now officially ready to open following the handing over of keys to principal Bev Flanagan.

The new state-of-the-art building is located next to Aylesbury College and is part of the Buckinghamshire Integrated Learning Campus.

The building, which has taken just under a year to complete will officially open its doors next week.

Representatives from BAM Construction handed over the keys to Ms Flanagan this morning.

The campus cost £10m and has space for 600 students.

It includes high-tech IT facilities and bespoke construction workshops.

Ms Flanagan said; “This fantastic new facility will ensure our students are given the very best learning environment.

“It will enhance their education experience and help us to ensure our young people are ready for work and well qualified for their chosen career in either IT or construction sectors.”

The college gives 14-19 year olds the opportunity to take a highly regarded, full time, technically-oriented course of study specialising in either construction or IT.
