What makes us different

Tameside College has a reputation for providing the right skills for local, regional and national employers.  This includes the delivery of degree courses to meet the demand of higher level skills that businesses require.

In a survey of employers (summer 2016) the CBI reported the following needs:

  • 77% of businesses expect to have more job openings for people with higher level skills.
  • The demand for leadership and management skills has increased to 67%.
  • The proportion of businesses (69%) not confident there will be enough people available in the future with the skills to fill their high-skilled jobs has reached a new high.

Degree level qualifications will make you more attractive to employers and more competitive in the job market.

I would recommend Tameside College to friends and family. The tutors were extremely supported, and they helped guide me through the course, and provided great feedback on my assessments so that I could reach my full potential. Following on completion of the course, I have been offered a permanent position teaching.
