Celebrating 5 Years of our Forest of Dean Campus
As we approach the 5th anniversary of the opening of our Forest of Dean campus, we’ve been reflecting on some of the key moments in its journey since we opened the doors in 2018.
Gloucestershire College (GC) is thrilled to have been named a 2030 Climate Action finalist in this year’s Green Gown Awards, thanks to its industry-leading GC Zero project and commitment to driving decarbonisation in education.

After months of hard work, we’re pleased to say that the major works for our GC Zero project are coming to an end, and all is now in place to make the final connections which will see our Gloucester and Cheltenham campuses switchover to using fully renewable energy.
