Legal Status

The Corporation was established under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 for the purpose of conducting Middlesbrough College. Middlesbrough College was incorporated in June of 1995, following the merger of Kirby Further Education College and Acklam Sixth form College, and was reconstituted in August of 2002 following a merger between Middlesbrough College and Teesside Tertiary College. The College is an exempt charity for the purposes of the Charities Act 1993 as amended by the Charities Act 2006. The College relocated at the beginning of the Academic Year 2008 / 2009 from its four former campuses, to a brand new College on Dock Street, close to Middlesbrough town centre.
