The beautiful campus grounds house the Animal Care, Animal Management and Veterinary courses, where the resident award-winning pygmy goats frolic outside. There is also an aviary with chickens, guinea fowl and birds of prey. Inside a whole range of animals can be found, from reptiles to aquatic species to rodents.
This location is also perfect for horticulture apprentices to specialise in landscaping, production, plant and soil science, parks, gardens or green spaces.
Back inside and students and apprentices can be found in the Motor Vehicle workshop learning all things vehicle maintenance and repair, gaining the technical skills to progress in the industry. Next door, Engineering courses of varying levels are taking place, where students are learning how to build everything from aeroplanes to buildings.
A purpose-built Painting & Decorating centre allows students to practice specialist decorative finishes and wallpapering in a realistic setting.
The Somer Valley Campus is home to a state of the art Construction Skills Centre, a venue for many regional and national competitions. It has large Electric, Carpentry, Brickwork, Stonemasonry, Woodwork, Plumbing and Refrigeration workshops inside filled with skilled students and apprentices.
Bath College also has a large number of Foundation Learning Programmes for learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Coming soon to Somer Valley Campus is a brand new SEND centre which will provide a safe and inviting environment for students to further develop their skills.
