Whatever the ambition and passion of our learners, Trafford College is here to help them succeed. Every year, thousands of students join us on courses that are designed to further their career prospects, enable transition to higher education or simply satisfy a desire to learn new skills and support wellbeing.
Our aim at Trafford College is two-fold – to provide an inclusive educational offer that serves the needs of our local community for young people and adult learners; and to provide a careers focused curriculum that meets the needs of local businesses, and enables our students to further their employment prospects. In short, we are here to ensure our students develop the skills, attitudes and behaviours required for success in life and work.
We have two main campus sites in Trafford. Our Stretford Campus offers Adult Education courses in maths, English and ESOL. We also provide a range of courses across STEM subject areas such as Applied Science, Construction & Building Services, Digital & ICT, Engineering and Motor Vehicle. These courses are delivered with industry standard resources and are accessed by young people, adult learners, Higher Education students, apprentices and local businesses. Our Altrincham Campus contains our dedicated 6th Form Centre providing a range of academic qualifications, as well our amazing Hospitality & Catering, Hair & Beauty and Sport and Uniformed Services courses delivered through our Aspire Restaurant & Bar, Enhance Salon and Spa and Strive Fitness Suite. The campus also contains our Creative Arts building providing a large number of full and part time courses for young people and adults. Our Foundation Learning department delivers courses with a focus on personal development and progression into vocational and academic studies. The campus also provides hugely popular courses in Business, Finance and Law, as well as Health & Social Care, Education and Childcare.
