Futureworks expands to satisfy student demand

Futureworks Media School in Manchester is expanding to cope with demand for its diploma courses.

The privately-run college based on Mosley Street has invested £100,000 increasing its student capacity from 250 to 400 and take 3,500 sq ft of space in the adjacent building on Dickinson Street.

The space has been fitted out to provide extra room for Futureworks’ games department and administration unit. The film and television, audio and CGI departments have also expanded to take the remaining space at 87 – 89 Mosley Street.

The college now uses 17,500 sq ft of purpose-built facilities that house studios and equipment for the provision of two and three year vocational media courses in additional to traditional degrees.

Managing director, Chris Mayo, commented: “The shortfall in university places has meant that increasing numbers of students are realising the career opportunities that come with more vocational courses. At Futureworks, our courses are delivered by industry-expert tutors within cutting-edge facilities and the existing space we had just couldn’t satisfy the demand we have been seeing for this.

“This expansion is a big investment for us but one that will definitely see dividends. Students are now leaving school more switched on and savvy to the fact that the practical and hands-on courses we offer will provide them with the skills and technical abilities they need to enter the world of work.”

Futureworks courses are designed purposefully to meet the needs of industry and equip students with the practical skills they need to secure a place on the ladder of their chosen career.
