The project is being developed at the Weavers’ Triangle site which features a 150 year old Victorian mill – Victoria Mill will be the location of the UTC. It is being developed by Visions Learning Trust, with lead sponsor Training 2000 (one of the North West’s largest independent work based learning providers of training courses), Burnley Council and Barnfield Investment Properties. It already has the backing of a range of leading local and national employers, as well as Liverpool John Moores University and the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).
From inspirational science laboratories – complete with teacher walls, ICT workstations, and demonstration areas – to a prep room with vast storage spaces, Innova Design Solutions has equipped the science spaces at the new technical college, Burnley UTC, for a future of learning. The Grade II listed cotton mill has been completely transformed into a 21st century learning space, fit for the North West’s first University Technical College.
