Transformation at the Gallows!

Some hard work has been taking place at the Gallows hub in Ilkeston, transforming it into a fresh, inspirational learning space.

Have a look at the images to see the effort that went into the refurbishment, and also the brilliant finished product – ensuring that the facilities provided for R.E.A.L. learners are the best that they can be.

The improvements made have been supported by the R.E.A.L. Foundation Trust, and are part of R.E.A.L.’s ongoing commitment to reinvest in facilities and to constantly look at ways to improve and adapt buildings and equipment.

Claire Bishop, Learning Manager at the Gallows said: “The Gallows is looking incredible. The building has a new vibe! Thank you to everyone involved, the building is really inviting and we are all enjoying the new look.”

R.E.A.L. learners at the Gallows love the new-look hub, with one learner saying: “I love the work that has been done. It feels bigger and light. I really love the new white board walls.”

Well done to everyone who made this transformation possible!
