About Us


We’re the top performing college in the country and rated Ofsted ‘outstanding’.  Because we put in everything we’ve got to make sure our students succeed.  
At Gateshead College we give our students the employment edge. 
That means work-ready students with the unique combination of high quality education and real world skills. We develop our courses hand in hand with local companies, so our students will have the experience and work ethic to do their employer proud.
Supporting business and the local economy is at the heart of everything we do. 
We’re committed to recognising and celebrating individuality. We appreciate that we are all individuals, we have our own way of doing things, our own stamp and approach.
Our individuality is not only what makes us all unique, it is also our strength. We’re focused on creating the right environment, culture, processes and policies that fit our whole college community. 
We want our staff and students to feel happy, fulfilled and to be successful and equality and diversity is a key factor in achieving this.
