Officially opened in September 2017, this modern building boasts the latest technology and is situated within Ashford town centre, close to the international station that is served by both Eurostar and the high-speed link into London. A number of town-centre parking locations are available close by.
Our simple, private, straightforward meeting spaces are dotted throughout the College and are prefect for small meetings, up to a capacity of four people.
Our classrooms are varied in their dimension and layouts, thus offering a range of possibilities for a host of different events, meetings and gatherings. All of our classrooms can be individually temperature controlled and come complete with an interactive white-board, projector and PC. Each room also comes with a normal whiteboard and the option of a flip board if required is available.
Professional Development Suite
The Professional Development Suite, situated on the top floor of the College, is able to accommodate 24 people and is fitted with state of the art multifunctional desk spaces where users can opt for tables, or with a push of the hand, a fully operational PC station will rise from the desk space.
Our multi-purpose lecture theatre has a capacity of approximately 40 people, dependent upon layout and activities. This versatile location comes complete with two PCs linked to independent projectors, access to the College Wi-Fi and a hearing loop. Due to the multi-functional aspect of this space, you can opt to have the tables and chairs removed, should you wish to utilise all the entirety of this space for your event.
For a minimum of four hours hire, our PC suites are perfect for group training sessions and workshops that require all guests to use a PC. With a capacity of 24 people, all PCs come with the complete Microsoft package as well as some more professional and specialised programmes. If you are looking to use a specific programme, please state which programme you will be looking to use upon application.
