Dundee and Angus College are set to get a new college campus


Dundee and Angus College are set to have their third city campus in Dundee following £4.5 million given to the college from the Levelling Up Fund.


After Friday's news that Dundee was set to be the first area in Scotland to benefit from the Levelling Up Fund in partnership with the UK Government, it was announced that £4.5 million of the funding would be going towards the construction of a new college campus in the city.


The funding was given as part of a wider £20 million that was given to the city which will help projects and other initiatives in the city, including £1.2 million given to Dundee Museum of Transport.



Not too much is known about the construction of the campus as of yet including where the location of it will be, however, what is known is that it will provide training opportunities in the digital, green skills, energy transition and construction sectors.


Simon Hewitt, the principal of Dundee and Angus College said:


"We welcome this significant investment in the college. It’s recognition that we are best placed to provide the skills that will be needed by the workforce of the future. The [£4.5 million], will form the start of our wider campus developments and enhancements. It will enable us to invest in our buildings and facilities, particularly in the areas of green skills and technology. It will support training for students and apprentices in the energy transition and construction sectors, meeting some of the key economic needs of regional and local businesses."
