Shrewsbury Colleges Group welcomes all

Shrewsbury Colleges Group (SCG) offers a huge range of courses for all age groups – and it’s not too late to apply for full-time courses starting this September. The College’s primary focus is helping its students succeed and progress, whether that’s to a higher level course, an apprenticeship, on to university, or into employment.

With bus links for students in the Bridgnorth/Telford areas, SCG, which formed in August 2016 when Shrewsbury Sixth Form College and Shrewsbury College merged, is closer than you think. There are subsidised Bridgnorth/Much Wenlock, Broseley and Buildwas/Leighton routes which take students straight to all three campuses.

The College is open to students of all ages and backgrounds, including school leavers, apprentices, university-level students, international students, and adults. It is Shropshire’s largest A Level provider with over 30 A Levels, as well as a huge range of vocational courses in over 25 different subject areas. Prospective students can come to one of the many advice events throughout the year or take a campus tour to view our three campuses in and around the town centre.

Catherine Armstrong, vice principal for curriculum support and business development, explains, “We’re here to help students make outstanding progress and succeed, whether they’ve chosen A Levels, BTEC vocational courses or an apprenticeship. We also offer degree level and professional courses, professional development and part-time hobby courses. Choosing to study at Shrewsbury College will help prepare you for life after college, whether that’s further or higher education or an apprenticeship or employment.

“Experts from our impartial advice and guidance service can help you make decisions about your education and training or choice of career. We’ll also support you with issues with your health, travel, well-being, finances and studies. We offer support to students within all curriculum areas to ensure they’re given equal opportunities to achieve success in their studies.

“An amazing 97% of vocational students surveyed said the help they received when they first got in touch was good. Many of our students who choose to study A Levels go on to university; 74% who progressed in 2013 completed their degrees last year – 81% of those gained a first or upper second class honours degree; 43% of our vocational students progressed to university/a higher education course; 21% gained employment or an apprenticeship and 30% progressed to another further education course last year. And we’re delighted that this year 16 of our A Level students have received offers to study at either Oxford or Cambridge university.”
