Willmott Dixon continues its role updating and enhancing facilities across Oldham with Block C, a new three-storey college extension that specialises in health, beauty, travel and tourism.

The 2,400 square metre building is the final stage of a three phase upgrade for college accommodation, delivered while the rest of the college remained operational.

A focus on beauty and vocational training

Providing a regional training hub for the Hair & Beauty sector, Block C houses its own commercial salon for the students to practice and learn their trade. There are also 17 new classrooms designated to Travel & Tourism, Sport & Uniformed Public Services learning; providing the region's best facilities for training in these important areas.

Completing Block C at the college was the final element of a major investment by the college in vocational education and part of a wider regeneration of Oldham town centre that also includes the extension of the Metrolink and new leisure facilities that our team have also built.
