How the College is organised


We have over 2,300 full time students, (over half of these are aged 16-18), and over 6,000 part time students.


Courses are delivered by one of 4 departments, each led by a Curriculum Manager. These are:



"Each department is led by a Curriculum Manager, who report to our Assistant Principal of Education and Training, Kate Hobbs. All departments have an administrative team as well as tutors and lecturers. In total, over 600 staff are employed by the college."



The strategic direction of the college is set and monitored by a Corporation, (similar to a school’s Board of Governors). You can find out more about the corporation here.


Most of the college’s courses are funded by the Education Funding Agency (EFA) and the Skills Funding Agency (SFA), the bodies responsible for all post-16 education apart from higher education. However, we also have a large number of students studying higher education courses and provide training for local businesses.
