Community Partnership

Stockport College works with a range of partners in the community, across the region, and nationally.

Stockport College has a Community Partnership which enhances our college offer to our students.

Here at Stockport College we believe that it is essential to work with our local communities to provide the education provision that our communities want whilst reaffirming connections that create opportunities for our students. By joining with our partners we can provide that holistic experience that addresses all areas of our students educational and personal and social development needs.

The partnership provides inclusive support for student challenges, it provides opportunities for student led social action and response to civic duty; in addition to offering creative opportunities for work experience as well as complementary educational activities.

The Community Partnership adds value to our overall college offer, and ensures that our college remains at the heart of our local community. For more information contact Michelle McLaughlin, Student Enagagement & Learner Voice Lead on 0161 296 5622 or
