Why Choose SLC?
Last updated: Tuesday 17th February 2015
We put learning teaching and assessment at the heart of everything we do. Learning, teaching and assessment is our core business. All college staff are challenged to contribute to students’ success. Ofsted 2013 said:
“Tutors are enthusiastic and use their skills and commercial experience effectively to develop learner’s skills.”
SLC is a state-of-the art £43million facility with a purpose-built hair salon, beauty and holistic therapies suite, engineering and construction workshops and TV and radio studios to support curriculum delivery. There is a well-stocked Library where students may access a wide range of resources including books and e-books, newspapers and journals, DVDs and CDs. There are Wi-Fi enabled PCs throughout the college and all students have secure access to the SLC computer network. In addition, students may borrow laptops to help them with their studies.
To enhance the student experience, there is a well-equipped gym, a boxing gym, a student lounge where students may relax and socialise, a refectory and coffee bar.
The added facilities on-site create a great learning environment for our students. The range of facilities we offer our students both supports their studies and enriches their college life.
“The newly built site provides an attractive and lively learning environment.”
Ofsted Inspection Report, July 2013
Construction and Engineering Workshops
The Construction and Engineering workshops are bespoke training facilities which replicate the real life working environment in both these industries. The kit and materials are industry-standard.
Our salon creates the perfect learning environment for our hairdressing students and helps to prepare them for the working environment they wish to enter. Students, staff, parents and members of the community can try one of our treatments at a fraction of the price and indulge in a new hair style.
The fantastic facilities in the therapies suite include a dry flotation tank, sauna and steam room. The suite enables students to develop in-depth knowledge of the industry along with practical skills. These facilities are also open to students, staff, parents and members of the community who would like to experience a range of beauty treatments, such as facials and massages.
TV and Radio Suites
The TV and radio suites create a real life working environment for our media students. Each year there is an opportunity for students across the college to take part in presenting on our college radio station wiggle FM and to take part in exciting projects to create videos for the college YouTube channel.
