Our Three Strategic Priorities

Outstanding teaching and support: High quality provision within an environment that ensures outstanding teaching, personalised guidance and support, which enables learners to develop their curiosity, knowledge skills, and achieve qualifications for their career success.

Financial strength and efficiency: Sophisticated, current and readily available information and analysis to support timely and effective guidance for students and employers, which informs decision-making to improve quality, whilst maintaining financial strength and efficiency and minimising the environmental impact of college operations.

Key strategic alliances: The forging of key strategic alliances to secure our market prominence and influence, in order to be able to focus on projects and products with high-value impact for our commercial customers, our learning communities and the College.
