TEC Partnership is excited to announce the ground-breaking ceremony for the new Skegness Learning Campus, which took place on Friday, April 26th. This milestone event marks the beginning of construction on the eagerly anticipated campus, set to offer a diverse range of vocational education courses tailored to meet the needs of Skegness and its surrounding communities.

Supported by a £14 million government-funded Connected Coast Town Deal, the new campus is poised to make a significant impact by providing accessible education opportunities in critical areas such as construction, engineering, hospitality, tourism, and digital skills training. With planning permission secured from the East Lindsey District Council as part of the Skegness Gateway and construction led by Hobson and Porter, the project is now underway at the Wainfleet Road site.

I am thrilled that construction is underway on our new Skegness Learning Campus. It is exciting to witness our designs and plans come to fruition. The new learning campus will introduce a broad curriculum and fresh opportunities for the community of Skegness.

The new, state of the art Skegness learning campus is set to be an economic game changer for the area. Not only is it our flagship Town Deal project in Skegness, it is also the single largest Towns Fund project in Lincolnshire.

The new campus is also part of the Skegness Gateway and will be a catalyst for change in the area, providing an inspirational space where local people can get the skills, knowledge, and training they need to access the employment opportunities they want. Consultation is also being carried out with local employers and learning providers to ensure the training offered meets the needs of the local economy now and in the future.

It is great to see work now underway on this fantastic facility and I forward to seeing the difference the campus will make within the community and for local people in the years to come.
