The Manchester College Openshaw Campus

Work progressing at £25m Openshaw Campus

The 18,000 sq ft roof has been fitted at the centrepiece of LTE Group’s Manchester College redevelopment and the facade cladding to the west elevation is currently being installed.


The state-of-the-art venue will provide young people across Greater Manchester with a centre of excellence for health and wellbeing (including sports), and construction and motor vehicle. The development forms part of LTE Group’s visionary investment strategy that includes a brand new campus in the city centre, responding to the increasing demand for training and skills in the region.

Students will be able to join the new ‘Industry Excellence Academies’ and ‘Centres of Excellence’ which provide opportunities to work in partnership with employers. This is part of a larger £139 million build project that represents the first phase in LTE Group’s estates strategy that will transform The Manchester College and UCEN Manchester’s education and training delivery locations over the next two years.

The new facilities will include a six court sports hall, outdoor pitch, gym and sports lab, a health suite with a hospital ward and infectious disease area for healthcare students and brand new workshops for construction, mechanics and engineering students. The new build will open its doors to the first students in September 2021.

The Manchester College is one of the largest Further Education colleges in the UK and largest single provider of 16-19, adult and higher education in Greater Manchester. More than 25% of Greater Manchester’s learning provision is undertaken by the college.

Contractor Caddick Construction started work on the new state-of-the-art teaching facilities in September 2020.
