Kirklees College launches new digital Innovation Hub


Senior Members of the Kirklees College team line up in front of the entrance to the new Innovation Hub

Kirklees College is delighted to announce the launch of its new digital Innovation Hub at Huddersfield Centre. The Hub was officially opened last week, during Staff Learning and Development Day, and colleagues from across the college were invited to visit and have a look around.

The Hub is a multi-room technology space, with meeting areas and specialist equipment, including a virtual reality lab, creation pods for podcasting and videocasting and digital experimentation zone, where the latest technology will be showcased.

One of the college’s strategic aims for the year was to create a dynamic and interconnected digital learning experience, and the launch of the Innovation Hub is the culmination of this work. The Hub aims to support the college on its digital journey by making technology accessible and equipping our students and staff with the skills and knowledge to thrive in the digital age.

Students studying a range of subjects will be able to use the Hub and its facilities, which will allow them to be creative and use technology to enhance their projects.

Pauline Hughes, Assistant Principal for Quality and Student Experience said:

“The Innovation Hub has been an exciting project to work on with our Quality team and it was fantastic to officially open it last week. We hope that the Hub will provide students with the tools they need to be digitally confident and curious and equip them with the technological skills they need for the modern workplace.”
