Newcastle College is a further education college in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, England. It is part of the Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group (NSCG). The College has grown significantly over the past 10 years and is currently home to a population of over 3,800 full-time students and around 450 students on higher education programmes. There are over 2,600 part-time/adult learners, and 1,500 apprentices working with around 850 individual employers.

In January 2010, the College opened its new £60 million campus. Included on campus is a Performing Arts Centre, Sports Centre, Skills and Technology Centre, University Centre and LEGO® Education Innovation Studio.

History

The college was formed as a tertiary college in 1986. However, the term "general further education" college better describes its business. In May 2016 the college announced its intention to merge with Stafford College, which is based in the county town and rated inadequate by Ofsted.

Newcastle-under-Lyme is a North Staffordshire town with a population of 123,100, although the conurbation of Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme, together with the Staffordshire Moorlands, accounts for a population of more than 500,000 and it is from this wider catchment area that the College draws the majority of its students.
