Welcome to Sutton College!

At Sutton College there is a huge range of part time and evening courses ranging from year long qualifications and flexible learning through to hour long lectures and one day workshops.

Courses each year continue to provide students with the opportunity to enrol on popular favourites such as photography  or the History Club and introduces new courses like Japanese writing!
Each curriculum area has developed a programme that should hold something for everyone. An opportunity to try things with new short courses in I.T or art or to gain qualifications in areas such as accounting (AAT) or teacher training.

In addition to mainstream courses, the College also offers Business Training, Apprenticeships, online courses plus holiday activities for kids too!

Background

Sutton College was formed in 1972 when the local council decided to unite adult learning provision in the Borough under one umbrella. The result was the specialist college building in St Nicholas Way with its excellent facilities, together with other venues around the Borough.

Originally named Sutton College of Liberal Arts, the College changed its name to Sutton College of Learning for Adults in 2001 and is one of very few Adult and Community Learning services in the country to have its own purpose-built centre. Now ‘Sutton College’ since June 2015, the College continues to provide approximately 1000 courses each year as well as apprenticeships and Business Training.

Funding & Fees

While still a London Borough of Sutton service, the College receives funding from the Skills Funding Agency.

All Colleges are given targets to reach in terms of student numbers, including attracting certain disadvantaged groups of people and income from fees.

Currently the income we are expected to receive from fees is about 50% of the total expenditure and the balance is provided by the Skills Funding Agency and successful bids for particular provision.

Governing Body

Sutton College has a Governing Body, which includes representatives from the local authority, schools, businesses, staff and students.

The College is committed to providing a happy, safe environment in which effective learning can take place and we value all of your comments, suggestions and compliments.
