At Gateshead College we offer the highest standards of education and real world skills.
It’s a combination we call employment edge and it’s totally unique to Gateshead College
Employment Edge means work-ready students with the unique combination of high quality education and real world skills. We develop our courses hand in hand with local companies, so our students will have the experience and work ethic to do their employer proud.
In 2021, the college partnered with Manchester City Council, Manchester Life and Ryder Architecture to launch PlanBEE Manchester.
This new and unique apprenticeship programme in Design, Construction and Management prepares you for a career in architecture, engineering, building services and construction/site management with a strong emphasis on digital skills and collaborative working.
It builds on both the successful M-Futures Higher Apprenticeship in Construction Management and the nationally award-winning PlanBEE programme which has been running successfully in the North East for 5 years. By bringing together the two programmes, PlanBEE Manchester provides a unique training opportunity and excellent career prospects.
