Chesterfield Centre for Higher Level Skills


D2N2 is delighted to have invested £3.48million from the Local Growth Fund into the construction of the University of Derby’s Chesterfield campus.

Located on the site of the former St Helena Grammar School on Sheffield Road in Chesterfield, the new £7.689 million campus offers students the latest in training and learning and is also a place for business development.

A focus of the new Chesterfield Campus is the training of students from the area, particularly adults, in higher-level vocational skills. Facilities include a mock hospital ward, used to simulate some of the situations healthcare students may encounter when working in the sector. There is also an Innovation Centre, allowing SMEs to develop new business ideas.

It is estimated the campus will be used by over 1,000 students in its first five years.
