Career College North East, South Tyneside – Advanced Manufacturing, Engineering & Computer Science
In September 2015, South Tyneside College and St. Wilfrid’s RC College launched the UK’s first Career College for advanced manufacturing, engineering and computer science. This pioneering partnership between a college and school – Career College North East – is equipping the region’s young talent with the academic and practical skills needed to progress into relevant careers.
The vision for the Career College North East is to inspire and equip young people to become the next generation of advanced manufacturing engineers and computer scientists. Increased production at manufacturing companies, as well as their associated supply chains, will all need skilled workers across a diverse range of roles and Career College North East will therefore provide a unique vocational training solution to bridge this skills gap as well as contributing towards the growing success of organisations in the region.
