Advice and Enrolment Event

Thinking about your next step doesn’t have to be scary, you just need to think about what’s best for you. And if you are looking for the best - then that's us.  We're the best Ofsted rated college in Tyneside - fact. You probably hear people in education talking about Ofsted quite a lot, so what does it all about? 

Basically, it means the government body for education has inspected us and they have judged us to be 'good' for everything - so that's everything; from where you learn, to how you learn, the content of what you learn and the teachers delivering it.  Every single aspect of the college is good.  We're not just great at some things and not so good at others - we're good at everything. Officially.  Which is pretty important when it comes to taking your next step to a career or further study.

The best way to find out everything you need to know about what we do and how we do it is at one of our advice and enrolment events. You’ll chat to our expert teaching staff, discuss career options with our dedicated careers advisors, have a tour of the facilities and get the information you need to make the right choice for you.

Our next event is virtual via our LiveChat platform, so you can still find out everything you need to know from the comfort of your own home. LiveChat is simple. 

Register your attendance here, then at the evening you simply head to the LiveChat box at the bottom right-hand corner of the website and well, live chat!
