Newcastle College Group

NCG is one of the UK’s leading providers of education and training, consisting of seven colleges, with around 2,400 staff nationally, which makes us one of the largest not for profit training groups in the UK.

We work with thousands of learners, employers and apprentices each year, collaborating with businesses across the UK to help underpin their journey to success and future growth.

Our vision is to be the UK’s leading college group recognised for our local impact, national influence, and reach.

Our mission is to enable social mobility and economic prosperity through education.  We will do this through six core pillars:

  • Quality: Exceptional teaching, learner experience and outcomes
  • Curriculum: Innovative, relevant courses and qualifications
  • People: Ambitious and responsible educators, and leaders
  • Facilities: Outstanding digital and physical learning environments
  • Finance: Financial sustainability powering reinvestment
  • Reach: Impactful external engagement and civic commitment.

We value and empower our people by:

  • Being both inclusive and diverse
  • Trusting and respecting our communities
  • Taking ownership whilst working collaboratively
  • Inspiring excellence and curiosity.

We believe in procuring and working with like-minded suppliers who share our mission, vision and values.  We value the people we engage with throughout our supply chain to assist the delivery of our vital work and at the right quality standards.  We believe that by working together we can add value and innovation to our mission and also generate ethical and economic public expenditure, which impacts positively in our communities, the environment and in assisting economic recovery post Brexit and the Covid-19 pandemic.
