We are all about careers

Our focus is to help you achieve a fulfilling career, not just to help you complete a course.

Offering a wide range of full-time courses across a variety of levels, apprenticeships and higher education, we know you’ll find something to spark your passion. 

Earn while you learn

With an apprenticeship you can combine practical on the job training alongside studying at college. This means you’ll get to work alongside experienced employers in the workplace putting into practice what you learn at college whilst earning a wage. At South Staffordshire College you can complete an apprenticeship in a broad range of areas such as agriculture and land-based, business, engineering, motor vehicle, construction and trades, care, leisure, digital, retail, commercial, and many more.

Additional learning support and high needs

At each college, we have a dedicated Learning Support team who will work with you ensure your individual needs are supported to help you to reach your full potential with in-class support, medication needs, wellbeing and a safe place to discuss your support needs. Located at Rodbaston and Tamworth colleges, Futures is a facility offering sensory space designed to cater for students aged 16-25 with a range of complex learning needs. 

Higher Education

Study a university level course with us and choose from a variety of degrees in subjects including zoo animal management, education, film and TV, engineering, art and design and more.
