MFC are delighted to welcome Middlesbrough College as a Gold Partner.

It’s a step up in a relationship that has seen us work closely with the College in recent years, with their branding already a familiar sight around the Riverside Stadium.

MFC Head of Commercial Lee Fryett said: “Middlesbrough College are our close neighbours at the Riverside and we’ve had a good relationship for many years now. The partnership will further strengthen this year to the extent where we hope MFC can play an active role in working with and inspiring the students who attend the College.”

Middlesbrough College is a fully inclusive college and a key player in our vibrant, multicultural local community. As the leading College in the Tees Valley, they help to take the community higher and support students to achieve their dreams.

The specialist STEM College is unique to the region, delivering courses in every occupational sector area and at every level, including A-Levels, apprenticeships, vocational programmes, retrain courses, part-time qualifications for adults and higher level courses.

The College is also delivering new cutting-edge T-Level awards. These two-year qualifications have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that they meet the needs of industry and prepare students for the workplace. T-Levels provide students with the skills, knowledge and experience that they need to open the door to highly skilled employment, helping them to gain valuable experience and allowing employers to meet the new talent in their industry.

Middlesbrough College is also part of the North East Institute of Technology (NEIoT) - a leading provider of technical education. As part of the NEIoT, the College delivers high-quality technical qualifications and bespoke training to provide a route for people of all ages and existing employees to gain industry specific skills.

As part of the College’s £20million transformation, brand new facilities and a dedicated IoT Centre are set to open this year! The new IoT centre includes state-of-the-art teaching spaces, IT facilities and a learning resource centre.

Zoe Lewis, Principal and Chief Executive of Middlesbrough College said: “We are delighted to partner with Middlesbrough Football Club and be part of such an important hub of the Teesside community. Middlesbrough is a place that is thriving, and we are extremely proud to play a role in supporting our local team!”
