New College Stamford is celebrating a record-breaking year as over 2000 full time 16-18 year olds choose the South Lincolnshire provider for the next step in their education.
Students and parents recognise the high standards set and achieved by the College’s lecturers, management and support teams and are further encouraged by its commitment to deliver high quality teaching and breadth of subjects, particularly at A Level, but also its wide variety of technical and vocational courses. Coupled with the College’s investment in facilities over recent years, it is clearly seen as one of the best places to study locally, with students travelling up to 30 miles each day to secure their place at the prestigious institution.
Janet Meenaghan, Principal and CEO commented, ‘We are delighted to see so many new and returning students join us for another exciting year at New College Stamford. We are proud to be starting our newly formed Air and Defence Career College and opening our new £1 million Digital Skills Centre. Our investment continues to supports our increasing commitment to deliver real skills and career focussed education to all of our students. It’s a great time to be a student at New College Stamford.’
The College’s fantastic and ever increasing relationships with employers raises its profile amongst students keen to progress their careers and develop work ready skills through employer designed courses and work experience opportunities. The expectations of today’s generation to obtain real life experiences and clear outcomes for success in their chosen pathways is delivered by the College’s excellent engagement with local and national employers who not only prepare students for work but can offer employment opportunities upon completion of their courses to the right candidates.
The College’s growing Apprenticeship provision and its newly formed Air and Defence Career College alongside RAF Wittering are excellent examples of how the College has developed its provision to provide more than just a qualification, but a career and opportunities for employment with strong reputable employers.
Students not only build their work ready skills, but progress to Universities across the Country and on their door-step at its on-site University Centre – University Centre Stamford. Students can study a variety of higher level technical and vocational programmes at Foundation Degree and Higher National Diploma level.
As the saying goes, ‘people vote with their feet’ and the College is delighted to be meeting so many curious, ambitious and dedicated students choosing to further their education and embrace their opportunities to develop their careers.
