City Gateway 14-19 Provision

Working with Kier, rhp have completely transformed a former warehouse and business units into a brand new training facility for the charity City Gateway.

Located in the Isle of Dogs area in London, these new facilities provide vital training areas for 640 14-19 year olds who have disengaged from mainstream education. The facility provides a range of training areas that accommodate for different vocational courses, including; catering, hospitality, beauty and therapy, and childcare. Other facilities include a sports hall and gym.

The project provides significant employment opportunities for teaching, management and maintenance staff but also allows students to gain important work experience whilst learning from professionals and strengthening connections within the community.

The project is EFA funded and is part of the Free Schools Programme.
