Our track record of success is recognised in our overall student satisfaction rates, which are higher than both the regional and national averages. This is reflected in our recent Gold award in the Teaching Excellence Framework – a national Government award programme that rates the quality of teaching and employment outcomes. We were the only general further education college or University in the Tees Valley to receive this highest accolade. 
Colleges up and down the country are increasingly being seen as an alternative provider of university level courses. The increase means that over 159,000 people now choose to study a higher education course at college (AOC, 2016).
