Our state of the art STEAM Academy is an exciting new building to accommodate teaching, learning and support facilities for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. If you’re looking to study with us this September, view courses taught at the STEAM Academy here.
The Academy is a flagship for showcasing 21st century teaching and learning, bringing economic and cultural growth to the Bridgend County Borough area. This is in line with a bid to develop further employment and training opportunities in the region, in keeping with Welsh Government’s strategic priorities.
Situated at our Pencoed Campus, the Academy has parking for students and staff, as well as an external service yard adjacent to the new Engineering workshops.
The new building is now the main reception area at our Pencoed Campus, maximising efficiency of space and opportunities for shared facilities between departments. Informal spaces for group study and social hubs will promote collaborative and social learning, making it a stimulating and enjoyable environment for our learners.
Close proximity to the M4 and Pencoed train station, the Academy is easily accessible to our learners and will attract those from further afield.
The Academy is more than just an educational establishment, offering many benefits to the local community. These include evening and weekend adult learning as well as café facilities for public use. A multi-purpose lecture hall and conference facilities will be available for hire in a bid to support businesses in the local and wider community.
