Stafford College

STAFFORD College, part of Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group (NSCG), is the college of first choice in Staffordshire and one of the top further education colleges in the country, rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.

Karen Dobson OBE, Principal and Chief Executive at NSCG, said: “Our expert lecturers are passionate about their subjects and will spark your curiosity, inspire, motivate and guide you on your journey to success.

“Our achievement rates are higher than the national average and we’re committed to helping you dream big. We offer a wide-range of courses including A-levels, vocational courses, apprenticeships and university-level courses.

“The world really is at your feet at Stafford College.”

“Your happiness and wellbeing is our priority and during your time at Stafford College, our outstanding support team will be with you every step of the way.

“We are here to help you to explore exciting new possibilities and opportunities and ensure you develop the knowledge and skills needed for university or the workplace.

“In 2019, we were so proud to be ranked in 2nd position in the FE Week national NICDEX league table for student satisfaction and progression. This award really is a testament to the hard work of all of our teaching and support staff who put the student experience first.

“There is so much more to life at Stafford College than just studying. We offer top-class sporting facilities, cuttingedge technology, friendly places to hang out and you can even join one of our clubs or societies. All great ways to meet new friends. The world really is at your feet at Stafford College.

“If you can’t decide whether to learn or earn, then we are here to help you to choose the path that’s going to get you to where you want to go.

“Our two-year A-Level or A+ Programmes are great options if you are thinking of going to university or study for a Higher Apprenticeship.

“If you prefer coursework and gaining hands-on experience, then a vocational pathway could be the perfect choice for you.

“Our apprenticeships are great if you want to jump straight into the world of work, earnawage and pick up technical and practical skills, all whilst you study for a nationally-recognised qualification.”

Karen added: “In addition, we are pleased to offer higher education courses at the College. Most of our higher education students join us from Level 3 courses, but students who have studied at Sixth Forms will be guaranteed a warm welcome.

“Across our campuses, we consistently exceed national benchmarks and the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) commented on our good practice in developing students’ employability skills and the integrated range of student support.

“Over 500 university-level learners join us each year to study either on a full-time or part-time basis and our smaller class sizes offer expert teaching and a personal approach to learning.

“Our HNCs and HNDs are vocational, so they can lead you straight to a career at the end or perfect as a great stepping stone to a higher qualification. You can even ‘top-up’ your HND at a later stage into a full bachelors degree.”
