Why choose SSC?

As a college we are all about careers not courses. Our expert staff will make sure you have the skills and knowledge needed to give you that competitive edge for when you start your career within your chosen industry.

As a school leaver, you will be treated as an adult, within a friendly and supportive environment. You’ll enjoy more freedom and independence, and you’ll make many new friends, all with the same passion and journey ahead as you. As an adult, we understand you may feel uneasy about returning to education, but there is no need to be. We have smaller class sizes and supportive tutors to make you feel very welcome.

#CreateYourCareer with us.

With five college locations in LichfieldTamworth, Cannock and Rodbaston, we provide courses to suit every learning style and help develop essential employability and interpersonal skills.  We offer full-time and part-time courses, apprenticeships, short courses and university level courses all designed to enhance the skills you need and give you a competitive edge in the job market.

Every year, over 10,000 learners choose us. Why? Because we are driven to inspire, empower and broaden your talent. Our easy-to-reach college’s offer amazing facilities. We have trade workshops, engineering hubs, a high quality restaurant, stylish hair and beauty salons, a zoo, art gallery, dance studio and a gym, just to name just a few.
