Why SSC?

At South Staffordshire College our students come first, and everything we do is aimed at helping you to realise your full potential. We are about careers not courses and 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.
