About Trafford College

Principal's Welcome

Whatever the ambition and passion of our students, Trafford College is here to help them succeed. Our college is part of the Trafford & Stockport College Group, and every year, thousands of students join us on courses that are designed to further their career prospects, enable progression into higher education or simply satisfy a desire to learn new skills and support wellbeing.

Our aim at Trafford College is two-fold – to provide an inclusive educational offer that serves the needs of our local community and to provide a career focused curriculum that meets the skills needs of businesses across the region, enabling individuals to further their employment prospects. In short, we are here to ensure our students develop the skills, attitudes and behaviours required for success in life and work.

Our offer at Trafford College includes academic education (A Levels and GCSEs), adult education, apprenticeships, community learning, higher education, and vocational/technical education – including delivery of the new T Levels. We have two main campus sites – at Altrincham and Stretford, as well as our highly successful Retail Skills Shop in the Trafford Centre. In addition, we deliver across a range of community venues within Trafford for adult learners.

Do take the opportunity to look through our website to see further details on all the courses and support that we offer. Come and visit on one of our open days, speak to our colleagues, meet current students, and have a look around our facilities. We will make your experience an incredibly welcome one, and we will provide you with all the information you need to make those all-important decisions on the next steps in your education and career journey.

Best wishes

James Scott, Principal & CEO
