On 27 October 2021, the Government announced that the Margate Digital project to create a specialist, industry focused training space on the High Street had been successful in its bid to the Levelling Up Fund.

Thanet District Council, in partnership with the EKC Group and the Margate School aims to create 2,000 sq m of cutting-edge, industry-relevant training space which will focus on digital technology.

The shared space will link with local businesses, and increased footfall will enhance the town centre, making it more attractive to residents, visitors and businesses.  It will deliver a range of technical qualifications, including specialised T Levels in Animation, Architecture, Programming, Coding, Graphics, Marketing, TV and Film, and offer seamless progression to Level 4 and 5 provision by introducing new Higher Technical Qualifications, supported by a government-backed brand and quality mark to meet the higher-level skills of industry.

A package Levelling Up Fund bid worth £19.8m was also submitted and approved for Ramsgate. For more information, visit the Ramsgate Future Levelling Up Programme page
