About Stockport College

Principal's Welcome

Whatever the ambition and passion of our students, Stockport College is here to help them succeed. Our college is part of the Trafford & Stockport College Group and every year, thousands of students join us on courses that are designed to further their career prospects, enable progression into higher education or simply satisfy a desire to learn new skills and support wellbeing.

Our 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. In short, we are here to ensure our students develop the skills, attitudes and behaviours required for success in life and work.

We are proud to be part of the One Stockport Team and a key partner in the Council’s ambitious new Economic Plan.

Our main campus site is conveniently located on the A6, Wellington Road, and is close to the town centre and the revamped Stockport Exchange. Our offer includes adult education, apprenticeships, higher education and vocational/technical education – including delivery of the new T Levels. In addition, we support the skills needs of the Manchester Airport Group (MAG) through our Academy located within the airport; and we support the skills needs of thousands of employees across the region through our Trade Union Education offer.

Stockport College is also home to our hugely successful University Centre. We offer courses at Higher National Level, Foundation Degree Level and Degree Level; as well as Higher Level Apprenticeships and the new Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs).

We have recently completed our £25 million campus redevelopment programme, ensuring all our courses have the very highest standards of accommodation and resources.

Officially opened on 24th March by Mayor of Stockport David Wilson, the college’s new front of house facility, the Lyme Building, features a main reception, state-of-the-art hair, beauty and nail salons, science labs, a business centre, Costa Coffee lounge and Student Services hub.

Do take the opportunity to look through our website to see further details on all the courses and support that we offer. Come and visit on one of our open days, speak to our colleagues, meet current students, and have a look around our facilities. We will make your experience an incredibly welcome one, and we will provide you with all the information you need to make those all-important decisions on the next steps in your education and career journey.

Best wishes,

James Scott
Principal & CEO
