Campus Developments at Yeovil College:

Our ambition is to ensure every learner fulfils their potential, and to do this we need to support our learners to continue their journey in their own time. We need to develop the estate so that we can provide a blend of formal and informal learning and collaboration spaces so that there is provision to enable learners and staff to be on campus flexibly enjoying ‘taught time’, guided and supervised learning and self-directed study. Learners will elect to spend more time on campus blurring the lines between learning and living. Spaces that enable learners to study, socialise, eat and drink will be a key component of our new estate which reflects our ‘only the best is good enough’ ethos.
