Work experience opportunities for West Midlands students could be bolstered thanks to the completion of the new North Birmingham Academy.
Due to open ahead of the new term on January 6th, the academy will accommodate students belonging to Erdington's College High School, the Birmingham Mail reports.
North Birmingham Academy head Kim Popratnjak told the newspaper that she is "delighted" the new academy will be opening.
"This is an opportunity for us to provide an exceptional learning experience," she commented.
Birmingham has a wide-ranging academy programme, with two new institutions specialising in developing the talents of aspiring engineers and those looking to enter the performing arts.
The North Birmingham Academy will be based at the former College High School, but will move to purpose-built premises in 2012.
It is being sponsored by the Edutrust Academies Charitable Trust, which is also involved in the former Shenley Court Arts College and Nechells' The Heartlands High.
Vernon Coaker, the minister of state for schools, recently said that he was "delighted" with the progress of the new academy.
