The Middlesbrough Centre is based at Stewart Park located in the heart of Middlesbrough’s premier park.
Middlesbrough Centre (STEWART PARK)
Following a successful Heritage Lottery Fund grant, the Grade II listed Central Lodge will be transformed into a state of the art Animal Management and Land-based teaching facility from September 2017. The creation of lecture rooms, a science lab, a learning resource centre, animal handling areas and workshops mean our students will be given the best possible start to their careers in their chosen field. The Centre and its educational hub will host a range of events throughout the year, and students will have access to the wider park which comprises 120 acres of parkland, including mature woodland, an arboretum on the southern side and two lakes which provide habitat for a variety of species.
The campus offers a full range of courses that can either be full time, part time or Apprenticeships, and from Entry Level to Level 3 in the following programmes of study:
• Animal Management
• Land and Plant
• Countryside and Horticulture
Additional to the main campus building is the Stewart Park Visitors' Centre and reception as well as Henry’s Café, walled and kitchen gardens, all open to the public throughout the year. In the wider park the college looks after the animal enclosures housing avians, farm and other large animals including fallow deer, llamas and goats. Finally the college’s Education and Events Officer based at the Bolckow Centre is responsible for ensuring that a broad range of heritage and educational activities are accessible to members of the public throughout the year.
