Sitting on the Aldridge Road, right on the 997 bus route through north Birmingham, James Watt College is an imposing building. Spread over two main buildings and five floors, the campus features a fully-equipped, professional quality TV studio, beauty salon, gym, media suite and construction workshop.
In addition to its impressive facilities, it is a centre of excellence for work-based training. If the campus could be summed up in four words it would be: ‘let’s go to work’. The gas and electrical engineering workshops are the envy of many commercial operations and the expertise of the teaching staff means students emerge from the courses with the skills, experience and knowledge to go to work the next day.
A new sustainable house is currently being built which will allow students to learn how to install, maintain and get the best out of new green technologies. Clean, green technology is one of the UK government’s growth areas and over the next generation will become one of the major employment sectors so this facility will help you get ahead.
While studying it’s important to keep your energy levels up so our Costa coffee shop and large canteen has plenty of healthy and tasty choices. There is also a well-equipped learning resource centre, where students can take advantage of free periods to catch up on coursework or revise.
