Revolutionising How We Teach Our Students

Our curriculum is delivered through a combination of hands-on learning in industry standard workshops, a high academic standard within core subjects and industry-led challenges with the aim of offering clear progression routes into employment, apprenticeships, higher education or further learning in work.

Our Core Values

Our Core Values have been developed by students and sanctioned by our partners as personal attributes they desire in employees. They are the bedrock of our college in terms of our ethos, expectations and the personal development journey of our students. Our core values are tied to and inform our behaviour and reward policy.
