Our Estate (2016-17 Year-End)
The development of a new energy efficient estate has helped to reduce running costs. The cost per full-time learner has fallen further last year.
The college’s carbon footprint shows a continuing reducing trend. This is driven by the college’s Environmental Strategy and by the development of energy efficient buildings in the Learning Quarter.
Utilisation of the estate is still very high. Some sites have what look to be a decreased use however this is due to re locating provision across newly opened buildings, the overall utilisation across the college has increased by 21.9%.
