In June, the College was delighted to receive

an award for the outstanding quality of its

Access to Higher Education programme

of the outstanding quality of teaching and the

exemplary learning experience provided for

students which effectively prepares them for the

rigours of undergraduate education.

Annual Report


New Construction Centre

Opens - September 2015

Throughout 2014-15, the College continued

to build on its outstanding partnership

with Jobcentre Plus in the local areas of

Consett and Stanley in continually aligning

its programmes to local job vacancy trends.

As a result of a gap in the market, coupled

with high employer demand within the local

area, the College embarked on an ambitious

plan during the summer, investing £500,000 in

a new construction facility. By the time doors

officially opened for business in September

2015, over 120 students had already joined the

provision with significant further recruitment to

come during the 15/16 academic year.
