ADVERTORIAL: Stockport College invests 23m into facilities to help deliver ‘career-focussed curriculum’

Sep 20, 2022

Stockport College invests 23m into facilities to help deliver ‘career-focussed curriculum’ Stockport College has a lot to offer its students after a recent 23m redevelopment 10:02, 20 SEP 2022 Advertorial Stockport College student, Esha Mumtaz, was recognised nationally by the Association of College after winning 'Student of the Year' (Image: Stockport College) Since joining The Trafford College Group in 2018, Stockport College has gone from strength to strength. Due to the large variety of vocational courses on offer, the college's reputation for supporting its students, as well as an incredible £23 million campus redevelopment which will be completed over the coming months, the number of students attending the college has increased by around 50%. The recent investment aims to provide facilities that will offer the opportunity for students to work with industry-level equipment, giving them as much practical experience as possible, and increasing their chances of employment or progression to university. The impressive redevelopment adds even more prestige to a campus that already boasts state-of-the-art construction and engineering facilities, and a brand-new art and design building. Soon-to-be students will be able to explore the facilities for themselves at the college's open day on Thursday September 29 from 4.30pm until 7pm. Young people will get the opportunity to meet their potential future tutors, explore the new college facilities and have a go at interactive activities. Register online to explore the many options the college has to offer. Stockport College is excited for the reopening of its library next year, which won it the CoLRiC Innovative Practice Award in 2021 for showcasing how quickly and effectively the college adapts its services in the face of the pandemic.

Conveniently located on the college’s main campus on Wellington Road, the presence of a university centre within the town provides a source of pride to the local community. As the campus continues to grow and develop, so does the college’s curriculum offer. As well as its successful technical and vocational courses, which range from art and design to hair and beauty, construction, engineering, health and social care, the college also offers T-Levels, which have become increasingly popular among students. With 80% of T-Level courses being academic classwork followed by the remaining 20% of time offering students the chance to gain experience in the workplace, the courses are popular because they offer the valuable opportunity for students to spend a minimum of 45 days working with an employer, learning the skills that will make them more employable once they graduate. T-Levels are a great way for students to progress onto university , they are the equivalent to three A-Levels and are awarded UCAS points in the same way as A Levels are. In September 2023 the college will be offering a range of T-Levels including; building services, construction, health care, finance and accounting, education and childcare, engineering and manufacturing, creative design, craft and design, and hair and beauty. Additionally, the college offers a large range of apprenticeships, which is another great way for students to get hands-on experience whilst they study. Students can expect to spend 80% of their time in the workplace and 20% at college whilst completing an apprenticeship at Stockport College. The college provides facilities that allow students to work with industry-level equipment (Image: Stockport College) James Scott, principal and CEO of The Trafford College Group, said: "The aim at Stockport College is two-fold – to provide an inclusive educational offer that serves the needs of our local community and to provide a career focused curriculum that meets the skills needs of businesses across the region, enabling individuals to further their employment prospects. "We are here to ensure our students develop the skills, attitudes and behaviours required for success in life and work and are proud to be part a key partner in Stockport Council’s ambitious 'Economic Plan'." The set up at the college has certainly seen students become recognised for their hard work, as they collect confidence-building accolades along the way. Just last year, Stockport College student, Esha Mumtaz, was recognised nationally by the Association of Colleges, and won 'Student of the Year' for ‘dedication and professionalism’ for when she bravely volunteered to work on the NHS frontline at the very start of the COVID-19 pandemic, when very little was known about the virus. Esha spoke of the support of her college when she won her award, she said: "I come from a background where girls do not get many opportunities to study. I am very lucky; my college and my parents are very supportive. By winning this award, I want to inspire girls out there, especially the ones that come from a similar place, that you are capable of great things." Now, Esha Mumtaz wants to inspire other girls, and help teenagers to realise that they are capable of contributing great things. As the campus continues to grow and develop, so does the college’s curriculum offer (Image: Stockport College) Another trophy in Stockport College's cabinet is its wide range of students chosen to compete in the prestigious WorldSkills UK competition , where last year, 400 students and apprentices battled it out across 64 disciplines to be crowned national skills champions. 3,000 people registered to take part in the UK-wide competitions, and after being selected as the top performers in their chosen skills from National Qualifiers held across the UK, an impressive six students from Stockport College were chosen to compete in the national finals. The Trafford College Group is one of a handful of WorldSkills centres of excellence across the country, and this year, Stockport College together with the other colleges in the group submitted the highest number of applications in the country to take part in the competition. With each new development the college is demonstrating that whatever your ambition and passion, Stockport College promises to help you to succeed by providing courses and experiences that are designed to further your career prospects and enable progression into higher education or the workplace. Attend Stockport College's open event on Thursday September 29 from 4.30-7pm to meet its tutors, explore the college facilities and have a go at interactive activities.
