Telford College

About us

Telford College was formed in 2017 from the merger of Telford College of Arts and Technology, and New College Telford. Our lively and supportive campus has been purpose-built to offer one of the widest ranges of course choices anywhere in the region – from academic and vocational to apprenticeships, and much more.

A level students are based in a £2.5 million 7th Form centre which also houses a suite of virtual and augmented reality technology. Technical students, meanwhile, can take advantage of industry-standard training facilities.

What do we do?

Each academic year, Telford College plans to engage with more than 2,000 young people in college-based programmes, plus more than 700 apprentices and over 3,000 adult learners.

A particular priority is to help students living in deprived areas – more than 40% of the college’s young people and 45% of its adult learners live in areas which are officially classed as deprived.

For every £1 of Government funding, Telford College’s A level, apprenticeship and higher education courses generate a return of more than £25 to the local economy – and collaboration with local employers is at the heart of everything we do. Our growing range of Employer Hubs are already strengthening these links, and opening up exciting new career opportunities for students.

We are proud to be named among the top 25% of providers nationally, with 96% of our students receiving offers from their first-choice university.
