The Sheffield College is committed to developing higher level skills in a way that is complementary to the needs of the wider region and our students.
The college has a diverse student population and has developed significant strategies to support students in learning, including:
The college enrols a higher proportion of students who are from underrepresented groups compared to the national average. The college has a high number of students from low participation neighbourhoods, neighbourhoods with a high level of deprivation, ethnic minority groups, mature students and students with a disability. The college aims to support students to access all types of Higher Education provision and therefore it offers a range of Higher National Certificates, Higher National Diplomas, Certificates of Higher Education and Foundation Degrees. To ensure that all students are able to fulfil their potential, the college offers high levels of tailored support. The majority of the college’s students get good qualification outcomes as identified in the college’s Access and Participation Plan.
The table below (Table 1a) indicates the characteristics of those students undertaking first degree qualifications only. The data is marked as ‘N’ because the college’s small group sizes means that it is not reportable in the Office for Students data (as per the key above).
