The College/Parent Partnership
The College is dedicated to high standards of learner achievement through effective teaching, training and support.
We aim to add value to a learner's knowledge, abilities and skills and ensure that they acquire appropriate work place and study skills in order to fulfil their aspirations and meet the expectations of employers and universities.
We believe that this can only be achieved in partnership by listening to our learners, their parents and employers.
