Milton Keynes College To Receive Almost £1m Government Funding

The Conservative Government has awarded Milton Keynes College almost £1 million to upgrade its facilities and buildings.

This funding is part of a major £1.5bn investment that will transform colleges across the country over the next 5 years.

MK College will receive £954,448 as part of the initial cash boost which is being fast-tracked to ensure students and staff can benefit from the improvements as soon as possible.

Ben Everitt, the MP for Milton Keynes North, commented: “This is fantastic news for MK College which will help future-proof their buildings and digital infrastructure.

“The College already does a wonderful job providing skills and training to young people all across MK and it’s more important now than ever that we continue to support them in doing so.”

Iain Stewart, the MP for Milton Keynes South, said: “This is yet another investment into further and higher education in MK by the Government.

"As we upskill our workforce post-Covid we will need excellent places of learning and this grant will help MK College continue its good work."

Last year MK College was selected to set up one of the 20 Institutes of Technology, which will be based at the historic Bletchley Park.

Institutes of Technology will specialise in delivering high-quality higher technical education and training in STEM subjects, such as digital, advanced manufacturing and engineering.
