Accommodation for the 16-19 Age Group: NAFE: Designing for Change. Design Note 22.
Department of Education and Science, London (England).
Many 16-year-olds in England seek alternatives to traditional formal higher education, thus requiring colleges to offer alternative means of attracting this group to continue their education in an educational atmosphere appropriate to their needs. This publication examines the problem of providing for non-advanced further education (NAFE) in the context of the expansion of an existing college. It considers the uncertainties of further educational requirements which, coupled with the constraints on building programs, indicate a pattern of growth in three discrete phases. Further, it provides details on the kinds of courses to be expected at the college and the accommodation which will be required. Finally, alternative approaches to the development plan are discussed and illustrated in relation to this overall strategy. Appendices include descriptions of two college non-advanced further education expansions; and calculation tables for teaching and non-teaching area capacities in existing buildings, and area allocations for 800 full-time equivalent students at the end of a phase 1 expansion.
