With its state of the art facilities the site is now home to SGS College’s first group of learners, studying digital technologies (cyber security) and engineering at the brand-new Berkeley GREEN College and University Technical College (UTC).

The site offers some of the best training facilities in the country for Built Environment, Welding, Engineering and Digital Technologies, with full and part- time training on offer to learners from the age of 14 upwards including apprenticeships, adult re-training programmes and degree level learning. The new College campus and UTC, is seen as a major step forward to encourage a new breed of young engineers.

The redevelopment also brings new business opportunities to the area, offering 300,000ft2 of commercial floor space consisting of office premises, workshops, laboratories, conference rooms and more.

The Berkeley GREEN Campus is a joint venture between GFIRST Local Enterprise Partnership and SGS College.
