In autumn 2018, the RNN Group will open a new £10.5million University Centre (UCR) in Rotherham town centre on Doncaster Gate, near our Rotherham College Town Centre Campus. UCR will offer state-of-the-art facilities and a wide variety of degree courses accredited by top universities and awarding bodies, including Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Hull, with plans for over 50 courses to be running at UCR by 2020.
17.4% of the population in Rotherham and Bassetlaw have a Level 4 qualification or higher, compared to the national percentage of 27.4%. University Centre Rotherham will play a vital role in closing this gap, increasing access to higher-level skills.
We have been working closely with 200 of the over 1,000 employers we have links with to develop courses that particularly meet a need for the local economy and input into the planning of essential initiatives such as work experience placements and guest lectures.
