The Learning Core

The Flagship Restaurant

The Luminary

All training delegates have access to computer facilities within the three Learning Cores, which are dedicated to specific disciplines. Learning Core 1 for example hosts fully stocked shelves of literature dedicated to health, social care, early years, counselling and allied professions. There is an abundance of study space available within the Core, with computer facilities or private studios. All computer facilities are supported with the latest Windows packages and have Virtual Learning access to support teaching and learning and facilitate distance and blended learning.

This fabulous new eighty-seat restaurant is designed to reflect the quality of its food and service. Fully licensed and open on evenings and weekends, the College’s own Executive Chef, Restaurant Manager and Sommelier ensure that standards are consistently high.

The Luminary is a brand used to describe the College facilities dedicated to health, lifestyle and well-being. This incorporates the Fitness Suite, CryoSpar and Sports Science Laboratory, Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy Salons and the Clinical Practice Ward.

The Flagship Restaurant follows the ethos of its predecessor, Gray’s Bistro, in ensuring that it provides the opportunity for students to gain skills training and practical experience. The restaurant can be booked for conferencing, award ceremonies, entertaining and professional training programmes, amongst many things.

The areas are all designed to be commercially viable business units and also innovative training centres. Each is open to the public to either access the core services or to access the training programmes on offer.

The Fitness Suite

Sport Science Laboratory & CryoSpa The Luminary Salons

Dedicated to life fitness and strength work, the Fitness Suite features the very best in specialist equipment.

As sport and athletics continues to push the limits of physical endurance and strength, increasingly science is being used at levels below elite sport to enhance performance. The Sports Lab incorporates equipment usually reserved for professional clubs and university centres. For example the Powercube allows athletes to analyse levels of VO2 Max, ‘SMART POWER’ and the Watt bike allow for a variety of power related tests, whilst the ‘SMART’ Speed Gates provide the latest innovation in speed and reaction testing. A variety of field based testing equipment offers a comprehensive sports science consultancy service.

Specific zones for general fitness, core strength and cardio programmes are enhanced by modern methods of training such as PowerPlate and Power Rack, designed to provide training facilities to suit athletes regardless of fitness and level.

A superb suite of specialist resources cater for commercial clients and training excellence. For hairdressing, the salons are equipped with styling stations, colouring stations and ‘climazones’, accommodating a range of clients. For beauty treatments the treatment suites, nail bar and tanning booths provide professional care and service in a relaxed and private atmosphere. The retail stations in The Luminary offer professional hair care and beauty products usually only available through specialist providers. The College is also accredited by Wella Professional as a Centre of Excellence.

The CET spa bath is used by some of the world’s leading professional sports clubs, including Manchester City FC, AC Milan and the New York Jets to improve levels of rehabilitation and optimise sports recovery. This equipment is available for commercial training and fitness conditioning programmes.

Other Services for Business

Creative and Event Services Hartlepool College’s commitment to business has, over many years, led to the development of some outstanding commercial resources, facilities and services. Informed and evolved by decades of practical experience, keen insight and client feedback, these include:

Conferencing Services Our Conference Centres are popular and successful places for businesses to host meetings, training programmes and special events. During early planning stages for its new building, the College seized the opportunity to create a new bespoke resource that would further amplify and enhance our support for business. Highlighting ambience, comfort, flexibility and innovation, the new Conference Centre is custom-designed to meet the demands of businesses of all sizes and areas of operation. Flooded with natural light from the impressive full-length glazing high above, our conferencing rooms take up almost the entire lower floor of the College’s canyon-like North Wing. This large, bright and welcoming space is home to an exclusive exhibition of work by renowned artist Tom Wall, and also a vintage M.G. car restored by College students. In addition, the College’s stylish Flagship Restaurant is also located here, offering a superb menu and, at certain times of the year, an alfresco dining experience.

Every room in the Conference Centre is designed to allow clients the freedom to conduct their business or event with complete confidence and comfort. Furnished and equipped to the highest standard, these are spaces intended to allow people to innovate, entertain and impress. Our Conference Rooms have a combined capacity of almost 388 people, hosting up to 240, 80 and 40 delegates respectively. The largest of these utilises cinema-style tiered seating to allow an unhindered view of a 6m glare-free high definition screen, accompanied by a Dolby Digital surround sound system. For meetings, a cluster of luxuriously appointed boardrooms are available across the corridor. Some rooms can also be configured to a bespoke layout depending on your requirements. Clients also have access to an array of presentation resources, such as interactive whiteboards and innovative shadow-free “short throw” projectors. Naturally, a wide selection of hospitality is also available. Finally, for maximum flexibility The Flagship Restaurant can be isolated from the rest of the building, allowing them to be operational even when the main College is closed.
