Our focus is to equip you with the education, skills and training to progress
Northern Skills Group is Middlesbrough College's commercial training arm
Our degrees include:
We regularly invite employers in to deliver presentations and seminars to our higher education students. These allow students to network with industry professionals and get an insight into the professional behaviours expected of an industry.
Students can partake in a range of site visits across the year, broadening their industry knowledge and applying their academic knowledge to workplace situations.
A high proportion of our degrees – in particular the foundation degree- contains a significant work placement. This ensures graduates have what employers frequently ask for, experience. We have a dedicated Placement Co-ordinator who will help students find work experience relevant to their aspirations and our careers employability specialist can help students source and apply for internships.
As part of our student’s professional development, they are often asked to work on live projects – these range from project managing an event in the Waterside Brasserie Restaurant to working towards an employer's brief in our STEM Engineering Centre.
Students are often encouraged to showcase their talents at professional events and competitions ranging from culinary events to music performances.
