About Salford City College

Salford city College...inspire and empower people to create and take opportunities to enrich lives through learning.

Salford City College is the top performing General Further Education (GFE) College in Greater Manchester in all three learner categories; School Leavers, Adults and Apprenticeships. This has been evidenced in learner satisfaction surveys, the Department for Education league tables and the College’s ‘Good’ Ofsted rating in December 2015.

Salford City College is proud to have 86% success rates for 16-18 year olds, 89.5% success rates for Adult success and 81.6%, success rates for Apprenticeships, putting us ahead of all other GFE Colleges in Greater Manchester. We have a number of centres offering a huge selection of academic and vocational qualifications. These range from basic skills through to degrees and include many work-based programmes as well as traditional classroom-based learning. Our programmes lead to vocational qualifications, including Apprenticeships, or academic qualifications such as A-Levels.

At Salford City College we recognise that our success is dependent on recruiting the best and most talented staff. We offer a friendly, vibrant working environment with great benefits and opportunities for development and progression.
