A warm welcome to NWSLC!

Marion Plant OBEWe’re delighted that more than 90% of our students aged between 16 and 18 progress on to positive destinations after achieving their qualifications.

Last year, 86% of students were on track with their studies by the end of the year, with 70% achieving at or above their target grades.

As a school leaver, you will join either a classroom-based Study Programme, or an Apprenticeship, which allows you to earn while you learn. Both routes provide a complete learning experience designed to maximise your career prospects, introduce you to employers, and widen opportunities for further study at college or university.

This year marks the exciting launch of our MIRA Technology Institute, developed in partnership with industry, and designed to train the automotive engineers of the future. Students will develop skills for working with exciting new technologies such as electric vehicles and driverless cars.

We operate according to the values of respect, honesty and kindness, reflected through the generosity, care and compassion of our staff and students.

Our community is diverse and we regularly get involved in helping to support many charities and local organisations.
We actively promote competitions and encourage students to compete, particularly as part of WorldSkills UK, which culminates each year in a national live event at the NEC to showcase the very best in young UK talent. I am delighted that this year we have 19 students in the UK National Final. The most successful students go on to compete on a global stage with the next international competition due to take place in Kazan, Russia in 2019.

Whatever your starting point, we will make sure that you have the knowledge, skills and support you need to progress in your studies and make a successful start to your career.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
