The College has been ranked both joint best in Greater Manchester and joint third in the country for learner and employer satisfaction.
The ratings were compiled by FE Week, one of the industry’s leading news sources for further education and skills. Results were based on four categories: learner satisfaction, employer satisfaction, 16-18 positive progression and adults into employment.
The performance of the College was compared to the 200 Further Education Colleges in the country with the table ranking the providers on a points based system set against the key criteria published by the Department for Education (DfE).
Scoring highly across all criteria, the College managed an impressive 10/10 for employer satisfaction.
Wigan & Leigh College Principal, Anna Dawe, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for the College and all of its students and staff.
Our aim is always to provide more than just a qualification so to achieve such high student and employer satisfaction rates and most importantly, ensure that our learners move onto higher study and into employment is something to be especially proud of.
Being recognised as one of the best providers in this national league table really shows that the hard work of both staff and students is really paying off and we will continue to build on this moving forward.”
