As the Chair of Derwentside College I am

proud to report that we have had another

fantastic year of success and achievements.

We have developed further our strategy to

offer the best opportunities for our students to

reach their full potential. This has been done

by placing great emphasis on employability

and the delivery of an excellent educational

experience for our learners.

We have continued to build on our outstanding

success in growing apprenticeships, with

significant support from local and national

industry and I’m delighted to report the

College is one of the largest providers of

Apprenticeships in the country.

However, our emphasis on apprenticeships

has not interfered with our role of providing

classroom qualifications. Indeed, in 2015-16,

we have improved our position once again.

This has been due to the immense amount

of hard work from all of our staff; Teaching,

Support and Management. They have

been outstanding in their commitment and

enthusiasm for the success of our students.

I would like to thank the Principal and Senior

Management Team for their leadership to

ensure the continued success of the College.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity of

thanking my Board Colleagues for their time,

enthusiasm and commitment to ensuring

Derwentside College remains a leader in

education provision for our community and
