Everything is on a smaller scale at Trafford, meaning your learning generally takes place in a classroom setting. This creates a more productive learning environment and gives you more opportunities to collaborate with other students.
We can offer a more supportive learning experience, with individual support for those who need it and more one-to-one time with your lecturers and tutors. This gives students the best chance of achieving their potential.
We are an integral part of the local community and our courses provide you with specific workplace skills. This includes the provision of Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs) which have been specifically developed with employers and businesses so you will get the skills they are looking for, unlocking high-skilled and highly paid jobs.
