Student Achievements

Each year, thousands of students achieve a qualification or complete a course at Wigan & Leigh College. This provides them with the opportunity to progress on to University, an apprenticeship or gain employment.

We are proud of all students, many of whom come back into College to share their experiences with our tutors and current students.
