About Gateshead College
Who we are
We're the top performing college in the region, number three in England and one of only two colleges in the country to secure Ofsted's 'outstanding' grading in 2015.
The College offers a stimulating work environment, across six amazing campuses, with everyone working towards one purpose: to shape and nurture the most highly prized students in the jobs market. We develop our courses hand in hand with local companies, so our students will have the experience and work ethic to do their employer proud.
Gateshead College is a further education college and was established on November 15, 1995 at Durham Road in Low Fell, Gateshead. The original campus was closed as part of a planned move in January 2008. The college moved into a £39 million new main site located at the Baltic Quayside in Gateshead. More than £75 million has seen the development of six campuses, for academic and vocational courses.
