Wakefield college opens digital campus before building new home

Wakefield college opens digital campus before building new home

CAPA College (Creative and Performing Arts College) has rolled out its digital campus with Liverpool-based Collabco’s myday - making it the first ever FE college to have a digital campus before having a place to call home. The FE college, which opened last term, is currently waiting on planning permission to build its physical campus environment for opening in 2020. It is Wakefield’s first DfE-funded Free School.

The decision to roll out the digital infrastructure was a strategic one that allows the foundations to be laid to keep students and institution in constant communication whilst in a period of transition. myday delivers a digital hub for all college resources and services for students and for everything from safeguarding policies to registration information for staff in one easy to access location.

“As a Creative and Performing Arts College we need to be able to physically come together to rehearse, perform and learn, but we are currently in temporary accommodation with plans to move into our purpose-built campus in the centre of Wakefield in 2020,” said Sarah Williamson, marketing and communications officer, CAPA College.

“The digital campus is vitally important to laying the infrastructure of the college and will allow us to transition more easily and smoothly to our new premises when that time comes. We currently have 105 full-time students who enrolled in September 2018, but our intake will grow, and we will have multiple academic years - not just a first year to accommodate too. myday will grow with the college and deliver increasingly more resources as we take in more students and staff and work with third parties - we’re investing for our future, and we are embracing a digital way of working from the outset - even before we have a physical campus environment.”
