Who We Are

 

As a major institution of further education in the Southern England, our aim is simple – to provide high quality learning opportunities for all. As such, our provision is designed to be up to date, flexible, accessible and responsive to all our customers needs, serving approximately 15,000 students across two main campuses, one satellite centre and on work based programmes.

 

We are particularly proud of our St Mary Street campus in the centre of Southampton which has completed its final phases of a 7 year redevelopment. Now complete, the campus houses state of the art facilities particularly for vocational training in Engineering, Hair and Beauty, Catering & Hospitality and a host of other areas. At present, we employ approximately 150 full time and proportional teaching staff within the main curriculum areas. We also provide employment opportunities for approximately 200 administrative staff and more than 150 part time teachers.
