Stoke on Trent College
Our vision is to be the technical and professional College of choice for Stoke on Trent and the surrounding area, enabling progression for all to a successful future, and being a trusted partner to employers, businesses, the community and our stakeholders. We will create successful futures through inspired teaching, learning and skills training. The College prides itself on putting the learner at the heart of all we do. Our mission is focused on the progression of our learners, both young people and adults, no matter their background or starting point. Our team of skilled and professional colleagues are dedicated to providing excellent and inspired teaching and learning in the classroom, in the workplace, throughout the community, online and through our growing cadre of apprentices across the City and County. Through our commitment to Lifelong Learning, we will tackle local inequalities, offer better life and work opportunities, and support a digitised and greener future, helping to bring about the skills revolution.
Many of our learners are drawn from the City and over 30% come from Staffordshire postcodes. We serve some of the most socially deprived wards nationally. The local authorities have made headway in improving education, local growth and productivity in our area and as an anchor institution we look to collaborate to expedite the impact of these trends. Our work with the LEI will help us raise the profile of the importance of the need to include and invest in basic and essential skills, and in the reskilling and upskilling for those aged 19 plus.
