The 17,000 sq ft building features purpose-built workshops, classrooms and IT suites maximising the College’s ability to provide a streamlined approach to skills and knowledge development. Based within 1 mile of the College’s current Filton Campus, SGS Horizon is in an ideal location to ensure that apprentices will benefit from the open plan delivery space and the dedicated focus on their sector whilst having access to the College’s learning resource centre and student support functions.
