The new look was unveiled to an invited audience on Monday morning and is a key part of the college’s expansion programme.

Moulton plans to build on the investment of £70 million in recent years by expanding on existing areas of specialism. This includes the development of a £1.5 million eight-lane UK Athletics Association standard athletics track opening in September, as well as a £5 million Food and Drink Innovation Academy, which will open in September 2017.

Worth £1.5 billion to the local economy, the food and drink industry is a significant employer with some 46,000 jobs requiring skilled workers in order to sustain growth in the region.

Mr Davies said: said: “The decision to rebrand has been influenced by our ambitious vision for the future of the college, while not losing sight of where we are today.

“Following extensive research with our students, staff, employers and the local enterprise partnerships, we concluded it was time to evolve our identity to coincide with our exciting plans for the future.”

The college works closely with Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership and South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership to ensure that all developments are aligned to industry needs,

NEP chief executive Jo Lappin said: “Moulton College is an outstanding College that provides excellent training for its students.

“It is proud of its heritage but also strongly focused on the future with a bold ambition for further growth, including the Food and Drink Innovation Academy, which will provide essential skills to our businesses.

“The new branding is a perfect example of how the College is successfully reconciling its impressive heritage and its future ambition”.

Her SEMLEP counterpart Daniel Mouawad added: "This commitment to expand and rebrand will enable the college to position itself not just as a Northamptonshire centre but as a resource central to the economy of the South East Midlands as a whole."

The Moulton College logo is an evolution of the existing logo with a modernised touch. It has been designed to encompass the College’s vision as a destination of choice in which everyone can achieve their potential. The rebrand sees not only a new logo; there will also be changes around the campuses over the coming months, as well as a new-look website.

Established in 1921, Moulton College has a strong heritage and has been helping to support and drive economic growth in Northamptonshire and beyond for nearly 100 years, attracting students from a wide geographic area and equipping the future workforce with the skills they need to succeed.
