The College has distinct ambitions to expand its choice of programmes and support the economic transformation of Wigan and the surrounding areas.  As a growing college we are in a strong position to continue to invest in our campuses with the development of state of the art facilities.

The College has created a community that encourages all students to enhance their learning through wider opportunities and support services; to maximise their achievements and secure progression onto further study, apprenticeships and employment.

The College has a dedicated Business Services Team and is in a secure position to grow this provision to continue to meet the needs of the local and regional community.

Teaching experience is desirable, but we are looking for someone with the confidence to share their experience and knowledge with our learners.
