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. 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.  In 2012 the College opened its new £7m A Level Centre “MC6” and more recently invested £20m in its STEM strategy, creating a state of the art STEM training facility, extending MC6 and creating bespoke training areas across its campus.  In 2016 the College acquired “Northern Skills Group Limited”, a well established local apprenticeship training company, creating one of the largest apprenticeship training providers in the North East of England covering priority sectors and supporting employers across the region with their workforce development requirements.

In 2019, Middlesbrough College acquired TTE Technical Institute, based in South Bank. TTE is a leading provider of technical training and consultancy services to sectors including manufacturing, engineering, oil and gas and process. In 2023, construction work began to move the TTE facility to the Middlehaven campus, with a brand new purpose built centre to train over 300 full-time students, 300 apprentices and 500 adults each year, alongside a thriving international cohort of students. The new facility is due to open September 2024.
