Trafford College officially receives chartered status at admissions ceremony

Trafford College was officially recognised as a leading performer in the further education sector when it was formally presented with chartered status this week.

Chair of governors Graham Luccock received the royal charter from Lord Lingfield at a formal admissions ceremony held by the Chartered Institution for Further Education (CIFE) in London on Thursday, 8 March.

Principal Lesley Davies OBE, Trafford Council Leader Sean Anstee, Michelle Leslie, Vice-Principal for Corporate Services, and Carl Miles, Marketing Director, also attended the event, alongside former Trafford College lecturer Sir Geoff Hall, who received an honorary fellowship.

Speaking at the ceremony, held at Apothecaries’ Hall in Blackfriars, Lord Lingfield said the college had fitted all the criteria to receive the prestigious status, which he hopes will become akin to the educational status of university.

Mr Luccock said: “To receive this status from the Chartered Institution for Further Education is a significant achievement for the college and we are rightly proud to be recognised as a leading further education provider nationally.

“The quality of education, and the opportunities our students receive through our renowned industry links, enables those studying with us to achieve their career aspirations, while also providing training to meet the needs of local employers.”

The College, which is the first in Greater Manchester to be recognised by the CIFE, received the status after demonstrating high standards in areas including teaching and learning, governance, finance, industry links and community engagement.
