The Principal, Pat Brennan-Barrett, leads a senior team responsible for managing the business areas of the College and developing, delivering and managing the curriculum. The curriculum is delivered through six Schools.
The College provides a service for local employers and we respond to their needs through our Business Centre, based at Booth Lane. We can help businesses to access government funding to provide Apprenticeships. We also offer a broad range of training options funded by other organisations such as the European Social Fund (ESF).
Staff are given every opportunity to develop their skills and we are committed to supporting a professionally-qualified and experienced workforce.
Northampton College conducts an open process for the selection of sub-contractors to work with the College. The College will ask all sub-contractors to complete a full due diligence questionnaire in line with Skills Funding Agency (SFA) guidelines.
The College is currently interested in working with a subcontractor or subcontractors offering programmes for adult unemployed learners, particularly in the Northampton area. Any prospective sub-contractors should, in the first instance, contact:
