The campus will offer vocational courses in construction, engineering, hair and beauty, and army resettlement.

The new college building is scheduled to open to students at the beginning of the academic year in September 2015.

Wiltshire College has four campuses spread across Chippenham, Lackham, Salisbury and Trowbridge, with places for 3,300 full-time students and 6,000 part-time students.
