We live at a time when knowledge is expanding at a rapid rate, specific information dates very quickly and technological change is resulting in radically changed patterns of working life. Thus, as well as traditional skills in literacy and numeracy, creative social and leisure skills are necessary, together with a desire for lifelong education.

The College endeavours to provide for its students a range of courses and experiences which will enable them to acquire and synthesise knowledge, master key skills, develop an ability to combine information with practical experience and to adapt to the changing circumstances of their lives.
