Values and vision
Middlesbrough College believes that central to its responsibility is its work with partner organisations and what it sees as its obligation to enrich the social, cultural, economic, and physical well-being of its whole community. The college is prepared for the fact it may be challenged to work in new ways and that, at times, its own capability or capacity may be tested.
“Progression rates onto further and higher education and employment are high. Highly effective support services keep students who face multiple barriers engaged in education and training. The principal and other senior leaders have successfully reshaped the curriculum to offer more science and engineering subjects. Good-quality work placements and enrichment activities prepare students well for the world of work.”
