A £10 million University Technical College (UTC) being built at Chatham Docks is on course to open in September 2015.
The facility will specialise in construction and engineering tuition alongside a traditional curriculum for 14 to 19 year olds.
It is located within close proximity to the Medway campus of the University of Greenwich and MidKent College and forms part of a regeneration scheme by Peel Developments, where new homes, offices, leisure facilities and an Asda superstore are also planned.
Councillor Rodney Chambers, leader of Medway Council, said: “This new school will provide Medway’s next generation of engineers and construction professionals with the education and skills they need to succeed.
“It adds a whole new dimension to the excellent schools already available in Medway specialising in the kind of skills for which the area was renowned during centuries as a thriving naval dockyard.”
