The college is known in the region for its arts-based courses and is a founder member of the National Skills Academy Creative and Cultural in recognition of its strong provision in creative industries.

The college is also the birthplace of the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy and offers a range of courses for budding entrepreneurs - many of which have gone on to realise their dreams of starting their own business.
