learning zone bournville college

Open from early till late the Learning Zone provides an inclusive environment welcoming all learners. Our centre is at the heart of the new campus, and we’ve put user needs at the heart of our design and the services we offer.
Divided into learning zones the centre offers a suitable environment for everyone, equipped with desktop PCs you can choose to work anywhere from the group work area by the reception to the quiet study area on the top level. The wireless network throughout the centre offers complete flexibility; you can bring your laptop and work wherever you feel comfortable, from a sofa to a desk and chair. We are also proud of the state of the art 50 seat cinema and media editing suite.

We stock a wide range of materials to support teaching, resources range from course textbooks, supplementary reading, electronic books, journals and recorded TV and radio programmes. As well as being available onsite, certain resources can also be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection.

All computers in the Learning Zone have access to the internet and the latest Microsoft Office 2016 software as well as other specialist programs. We also offer printing, photocopying and scanning facilities.

Staffed by a highly qualified team, help can be provided with any study skills and IT assistance.
