What our staff have to say:

鈥淲orking at the college has given me so many opportunities with a great learning path. Everyone is so friendly and always willing to work together to consistently improve as a college.鈥

鈥淚 would not have progressed at all in my career or had any of the wonderful professional experiences I have been privileged with unless I had received the excellent education and subsequent qualification offered to me by the college.鈥

鈥淕etting a job at the college has been a real game-changer for my career. I have learned so much and developed in a way I never imagined. I feel respected by my managers and my colleagues and like I am making a real difference to students鈥 lives.鈥

During their four-day inspection, a team of fifteen Ofsted Inspectors found that 鈥渢eachers and other college staff foster mutual trust and respect. Students and apprentices are keen to learn and are supportive of each other in their learning. As a result, students and apprentices display high levels of positive behaviour and are proud of their work. They enjoy their lessons and are motivated to engage in new experiences.鈥
