Newcastle and Stafford Colleges (NSCG) Group’s Stafford campus is situated in the heart of Stafford with excellent transport links. The NSCG Stafford College campus is bright, vibrant, warm and welcoming.

The recently completed Skills and Innovation Hub saw a £28 million investment to construct a 7,500 sq metre, 3 storey facility, equipped with leading edge equipment and state-of-the-art skills, construction, engineering and motor vehicle facilities, along with a 4 court sports hall, gym and 300-seat auditorium.

This dedicated facility sits alongside the Science and Technology Centre which is home to state-of-the-art science laboratories, IT suites and a LEGO® Education Innovation Studio. Since the merger between Newcastle College and Stafford College in November 2016, a huge amount of investment has been made to improve facilities and student experience at the town centre campus. 

Other recent enhancements include; a fully revamped Learning Resources Centre, new dining areas and a new Mac Suite, alongside substantial investment into innovative hybrid motor vehicle equipment and significant improvements to the IT infrastructure.

There is a dedicated sixth-form centre and first-class teaching spaces designed to motivate and inspire their learners, with pass rates and student achievement rates amongst the best in the country.

Additionally, they are a significant provider of apprenticeships, and NSCG currently has over 2,200 apprentice learners, working with over 800 regional employers, a substantial percentage of whom are in the skills and construction trades.
