Study and learn in Staffordshire

With two respected universities on our doorstep and prestigious industry apprenticeships with global brands, we’re committed to delivering first-class education and learning for young people.

A place of learning

We’re opening doors for young and older people to learn, grow, develop and retrain in Staffordshire.

With around 440 schools across the county, we’re committed to giving young people the best start in life and the number of state schools in Staffordshire that are rated OFSTED Good or Outstanding is above the national average.

But education doesn’t stop at school. With two respected universities home to over 27,220 undergraduate and postgrad students, we’re shaping the scientists, professionals, medics and engineers of the future.

We also recognise the strength of apprenticeships and are proud to support over 13,730 places each year through the Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group, JCB, South Stafford College to name a few.
