Dr Lis Smith, college principal, said: “It seemed fitting to tie in the opening of the In-Zone with the beginning of our 25th birthday celebrations as it feels especially poignant to enter this new era for the college while celebrating our past.

“We’re making real changes and innovations across the College, from the curriculum and our ways of working through to the addition of new buildings and that is one thing that we have noticed in looking back at the history of the College, we are established innovators that have constantly adjusted to meet the ever changing needs of our community.

“The event has been a resounding success and was a fitting opening for a spectacular facility. We’re now looking forward to seeing our students benefit from the In-Zone, which has provided them with one of the best learning environments available.”

Ben Wallace MP said: “I am delighted to be opening the In-Zone facility. This is a wonderful way to mark the College’s 25th anniversary. I believe the new surroundings will promote learning and offer a focus on business development and career guidance. I hope the students and staff enjoy working there.”
