As a college, our strategy is Career Focused Learning, ensuring that the learner experience and our relationship within our community, local and regional employers, are at the heart of everything we do.

Our mission is to provide an excellent educational experience, delivering creative, innovative and interesting learning for our young learners and adults.
The range of roles we offer are broad-ranging including teachers, technicians, learning support staff, business support and specialists. The one defining feature for all is the learner based experience. Everything we do is designed to support the teaching and learning experience.
We pride ourselves on maintaining a high-quality workforce of committed, dedicated professionals to help our students reach their full potential; therefore, we are looking for passionate, creative and innovative staff to help us achieve our pledge to the community.
