Welcome and thank you for your interest in Stephenson College.

As Chief Executive and Principal, it is an honour to work with such talented and enthusiastic staff, students and stakeholders. Our purpose is simple - we want our students to have the very best possible access to learning, which will enable them to leave us career-ready at the end of their study.

Students are firmly placed at the forefront of every choice we make and will always remain our number one priority.

At Stephenson College, we pride ourselves in providing a supportive and inclusive environment that allows each student to flourish in their own unique way. Students benefit from our state-of-the-art facilities and the support of our expert staff. We recognise the importance of vocational training for our students, the communities we serve and for the economy. We aim to build the aspirations and confidence of each of our students and to support their career progression and personal development.

The College works with hundreds of local, national and internationally recognised companies across many industry sectors to offer apprenticeships and Higher Apprenticeships and I am very proud of the excellent reputation we enjoy for providing quality training and professional support to the business community across the United Kingdom.

It has been a very exciting year of growth for us, as we have embarked on a new partnership with Brooksby Melton College, putting us in a strong, confident position to be able to continue providing education services to learners across Leicestershire and beyond.

As individuals, we are Good Colleges, but together it is my aim to lead both organisations to being Outstanding education providers in the near future – as deserving of our students, staff and the communities we serve.

Wherever you are in your education journey, we look forward to working with you.

Dawn Whitemore, Chief Executive and Principal – The SMB Group
