Welcome to Stoke Studio College for Construction & Building Excellence
I’m delighted that you are considering Stoke Studio College, and hope that this course guide helps you to understand the opportunities we offer and how a Studio College operates.
Stoke Studio College opened in Longton in September 2012 as a brand new concept in education and the first of its type in the area, with state of the art facilities and equipment. It offers outstanding and unique opportunities for young people in North Staffordshire. We relocated in February 2015 to join our Engineering branch on the newly-refurbished facilities in Burslem.
Our motto is “Educating the Next Generation of Experts” and our aim is to enable you to gain the qualifications and experience you need as a foundation for your future – whether you plan to continue studying, are considering an apprenticeship or want to move into full time employment with training.
Alongside our highly skilled teaching staff and coaches, we involve local and national employers to deliver the experience and skills that employers expect, and to mentor and support our students. Project-based learning is a core value of Stoke Studio College and enables you to develop a wide range of employability skills to complement your academic achievements.
You are very welcome to come and meet us to get a real feel of what we offer. Our door is open to all students who are interested and we’re happy to answer your questions.
Three students from the Studio College, Callum, Lynden, and Siraaj are being giving a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit South Africa to learn about the country’s history and culture and find out more about life there after apartheid.
Twenty two students will be taking part in the trip, under the Challenge South Africa programme run by Stoke on Trent College.
The Challenge South Africa programme centres around equality and diversity, teaching the students about the history of South Africa and encouraging interaction with local people, with the students witnessing their day-to-day lives.
Included in the itinerary for the 11 day trip is a tour of Robben Island, where they will see the cell Nelson Mandela was held captive, as well as a visit to the Khayalitsha AIDS orphanage.
Lynden said, “This is such an amazing opportunity and I feel so lucky to be a part of something so life changing and I cannot wait to go.”
The selected students have then had to raise £600 each by organising their own fundraising events before jetting off next February 2017.
Zoe Simpson, Lead Personal Coach, said “the three students that have been selected have been waiting for the day to apply to the Challenge South Africa Project from day one of their studies when they were issued with our Enrichment Booklet.”
Calvin Austin, a Learner Involvement Co-ordinator at Stoke on Trent College, said, “The South Africa Challenge is a unique opportunity for personal development, which will provide students with the chance to learn the history and culture of South Africa.”
“The trip is a brilliant opportunity for our students to work together towards something they care about.”
“They have all shown great enthusiasm and commitment to raising the necessary funds and I am proud of each of them.”
