A warm welcome to NWSLC
Every year, over 90 per cent of our students leave us to progress on to higher education or into employment. Ofsted rate us as ‘Good’ and we are proud of our very high levels of student success both in their qualifications and in many other areas. This includes the exceptional success of our students in skills competitions.
All our students are encouraged to develop their skills through participating in competitions including at national and international levels. Last year, the success of students included Best College and seven gold medals in the Welsh
International Culinary Championship, and five gold medals for digital film production and catering as part of the famous WorldSkills UK national finals.
Last year the College opened its newest campus, the MIRA Technology Institute located on the MIRA Technology Park. This highly progressive Institute was developed in partnership with HORIBA MIRA and three local universities (Leicester, Loughborough and Coventry). Students in this part of our college are studying to be the automotive engineers of the future, gaining skills for working with exciting new technologies such as electric vehicles and driverless cars.
At the heart of our college community sits a set of values: respect, honesty and kindness shape and guide the way
in which we behave. The generosity, care and compassion of our staff and students is reflected in our support for many charities as well as in the work we do within our local communities.
Whatever your starting point, we will do our very best to make sure you have the knowledge, skills and support you need to progress well in your studies and to move confidently on to either higher education, apprenticeships or into
I look forward to seeing you soon.
