Welding Workshop


The facilities in our Technology department will give you first hand practical experience using top-of-the-range equipment, including a welding workshop with 10 fully equipped welding bays.

The workshops have been created to simulate a real workshop environment with workplace organisation and safety measures.

We continually invested in new equipment, which recently has included a virtual welding simulator and metal working machine.

Other welding facilities include new Migatronic Omega 300 welding sets that weld with Manual Metal Arc (MMA) Metal Arc Gas Shielded welding (MAGS), and Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding technology.

New College Durham


New College Durham is a further and higher education college and a sixth form college in County Durham, England. It was founded in 1977 as a result of a merger between Neville’s Cross College of Education and Durham Technical College.

Until 2004, the college operated on two main sites near the city of Durham: Neville’s Cross and Framwellgate Moor. The site at Framwellgate Moor opened in 1957 and was extended in 1970; the site housed the bulk of the college’s further education (FE) provision, whilst the Neville’s Cross site, an ex-college of education site built in the 1920s, housed most of the higher education (HE) provision. In 2002, the college was given planning permission to build a new £37 million campus at Framwellgate Moor. Construction work began in 2003 with the new buildings being constructed around the old buildings. When the new buildings were completed, work began to demolish the old site at Neville’s Cross. The construction work was completed in September 2005, whilst the landscaping was finally completed in October.
