Planning permission has been granted for a new University Technical College in Dagenham, ELUTec.
This new type of education facility aims to inspire young people in East London and Essex to become the next generation of talented engineers and designers. Students will combine practical activities alongside theoretical studies through a new way of teaching. Their educational experiences will equip them with the skills, knowledge and personal qualities they need to have a successful career in industry.
The college, designed by LSI Architects, will be constructed by Kier and is expected to open in September 2016.
