We have a reputation to be proud of. Our College is very highly thought of locally – we’re held in high regard by learners, parents and the business community. 


We’re constantly growing. Things don’t stand still here. We enrol almost 10,000 learners, including 450 on Higher Education courses. Our ever-developing range of services means we’ve grown continually for the past ten years.  And our plans for the future are just as ambitious.


We invest in you. Learn something new each day here. We invest £350,000 each year in developing our team both within the college and through external courses. It’s a commitment we’re proud of.


We invest in facilities. We’ve invested more than £14m in facilities over the last six years, including a Design and Creative Industries Centre, Sports Centre, Automotive and Engineering Skills Academy and a University Centre. Find out more about our facilities.


We’ve got firm employer links. Training contracts with big name employers help us prepare students for the world of work. We play a leading role in the economic development of the area thanks to outstanding partnerships with leading global firms and the new National Football Centre. Find out more about our employer links.


We’re right at the heart of things. We’re easy to get to, right in the centre of town with fantastic public transport links and close to the A38, A50, M1 and M6. It’s a great place to live, close to castles and cathedrals, zoos and theme parks, and the glorious National Forest on our doorstep.
