The Bournemouth and Poole College (B&PC) is a large (12,000 students) general further education college that provides a wide range of courses across a variety of curriculum areas. It is the largest provider of further education and apprenticeships in the area. The project forms part of a wider estates strategy to consolidate the College on to two main sites:
The Lansdowne campus is located within the heart of Bournemouth town centre and currently operates across a series of single to four-storey buildings, some of which are Grade II listed and are defining structures within the context of the Lansdowne area. For example, the clock tower on the corner of Meyrick Road and Christchurch Road has been a defining feature of the College since its opening in 1917 as Bournemouth Municipal College.
The construction of a new two-to-four storey purpose-built hospitality and teaching block will replace demolished accommodation and bring new curriculum areas to the Lansdowne Campus. The new building will provide a high-quality teaching environment for the delivery of vocational training in Travel & Tourism, Hair & Beauty, Hospitality & Catering, Digital Media, Sports, Computing & IT , Sport and Fitness. The facility with cater for a range of students, from school leavers to adult learners. It is the intention that the College will offer their facilities for community use and create a “window” onto Christchurch Road to attract users and promote the services on offer. The facilities open to the public will include Hair and Beauty Therapy, the restaurant, and the gym.
