Our Principal


Marion PlantFor success, make SLC your college of choice. 

There has never been a more exciting time to join SLC. As a college with high quality teaching and learning at our core we can help give you the qualifications and experience needed to succeed in life.

SLC is committed to treating each student as an individual and our experienced tutors will provide all the support you need to achieve results. In today’s competitive job market, education, training and experience have become increasingly important. Strong links with businesses and work placements give our students a better chance of finding employment. So wherever your career ambitions or interests lie, our proven ability to deliver results should make SLC your first choice.

In January 2013, SLC earned a place in national history as a newly federated college.  We officially joined forces with North Warwickshire & Hinckley College (NWHC) and have been overseen by one principal since my appointment as joint Principal and Chief Executive in February. This is only the second time two further education colleges have joined forces in this way.  Having worked together successfully in the past, it made good sense to take that relationship one step further and form a Federation, a move which will allow us to expand our courses by sharing expertise and resources and improve support for our students.

Our award winning campus is a focal point for the local community that we serve. By investing in purpose built facilities equipped with the latest technology we ensure that our students have the skills employers are looking for. Our most recent developments have seen us open a Hairdressing Salon and an Engineering Department which have an excellent reputation for training. Since widening our course offer, there are greater opportunities to study at all levels, including Higher Education courses enabling you to progress while remaining local.

SLC is an open and friendly college which creates a welcoming environment for our students who come from a variety of backgrounds. Life at SLC is full of possibilities and our student body are never short of choice for entertainment and activities. We want you to have a great student experience here at SLC, one which allows you to make new friends whilst succeeding in your studies and fulfilling your ambitions.

The college website is the ideal place to browse through the range of courses and our Careers Advisers are here to act as guides to point you in the right direction.

I look forward to welcoming you to our college and to the many exciting opportunities that are here for you.
