CompEx just one of the courses taught in new classrooms
Four new classrooms ready for learning after Easter
An expansion space in the new Forth Valley College Falkirk Campus is being transformed into four new flexible classrooms.
It is just over a year since the state-of-the-art £78 million Falkirk Campus opened its doors to students, and the College has taken advantage of the lockdown to transform a previously under-developed 200 square metre expansion space on the first floor above the gym.
Head of FVC’s Estates Department Marc McCusker drew up the plans himself for the four new full-sized classrooms complete with digital technology and smart boards and will have room to accommodate up to 60 students once social distance restrictions are lifted . The refurbishment was carried out by FVC’s facilities management partner Atalian Servest.
It is understood a range of FVC’s Commercial Training including CompEx, Iosh and Nebosh classes will be the main courses held in the new classrooms, which will be available for use after the Easter holidays, though their flexibility will allow a number of subjects to be taught there.
Marc, said: “The new classroom development is progressing well and will boost the image of the College further within the CompEx world.”
Zak Stark, FVC’s Head of Commercial and Training Delivery, said: “I am delighted with the addition of these new classrooms to our new Falkirk Campus. This additional space will allow us to continue to meet the needs of the local community via public commercial provision advertised through the FVC website. It will also allow us to support the training needs of industry partners across the UK.”
Alistair McKean FVC’s Lead Commercial Trainer, said: “These new classrooms are also going to increase our ability to hold examinations, with laptops being provided by the IT Department.
“We will use this new space for growth of and existing course provision associated with HSE Training, Electrical Safety Training, CompEx and also the growth and development of commercial renewable energy training courses.”
