Rainham Campus Redevelopment

We've built the future for specialist construction and engineering training, right here in Rainham.

Our current Rainham campus is being refurbished and we are developing a new state-of-the-art Construction & Engineering Centre which will give students the skills and qualifications they need to succeed in their careers. Our Rainham site is part of one of the country’s leading college groups: New City College.

Our community deserves a college which is at the forefront of technology and innovation, so that our students, both 16-18-year-olds and adults, get the skills and qualifications they need to succeed in their careers. Work on the new campus is progressing well.

  • Cost of the total redevelopment – £15million
  • Start date of the building works – March 2020
  • Number of students campus will accommodate – 800
  • Courses will include:

Bricklaying, Carpentry, Construction Skills, Construction & the Built Environment, Electrical Installation, Engineering BTEC, Engineering – Performing Operations, Engineering Technologies, Fabrication & Welding, Painting & Decorating and Plumbing.

Construction company Ashe is leading the works. Please watch our film below to see how the building has progressed. Currently, the façade is being prepared, windows are being installed and work is taking place on the internal first fix.

The new centre will retain our status as the major skills provider in the borough and the wider Thames Gateway region, fully aligned to current and future labour market needs.
