Stanmore College is in the London Borough of Harrow and was established as a tertiary college in 1987. In 1993 all colleges in the post-16 sector ceased to be controlled by their local education authorities and Stanmore College became a Corporation funded by the Further Education Funding Council, and since 2001 by the Learning and Skills Council, which has been replaced by successor organisations: the Skills Funding Agency and the Young People’s Learning Agency. The College facilitates learning from Further Education (the Sixth Form) to Part-Time (Courses for Adults) and Employer Training. Its Sixth Form provides education to an average of 1,500 16-19 year old school leavers. Students come from the Borough of Harrow and a wide area beyond including a significant amount from Brent, Hertfordshire and Barnet.
Our mission is to provide high quality teaching and learning so that learners develop transferable skills and achieve their full potential.
The College offers a wide range of vocational programmes and A levels and it has recently secured STEM Assured status – an outcome-based standard that quality assures scientific, technical, mathematical and engineering deli ery. It has excellent links with industry and ensures that its programmes include employability skills and students are informed of appropriate career paths to meet the requirements of the jobs of the future.
Recent years have seen Stanmore College operate with a sharpened focus on five areas, namely:
- 16-18 year-olds
- workplace learning
- job seekers
- community learners
Stanmore College is responsive to the needs of local businesses and offers a wide range of courses and bespoke training to support these organisations. Whether a startup with an exciting new idea or an established business looking for fresh perspectives and skills, it can fill any training gaps with the commercial skills and knowledge required to help a business to flourish.
Expansion of the College
The College is continuously updating its resources and buildings to offer industry standard equipment and facilities and has a newly refurbished Learning Resources Centre.
