Why Choose PRC

Leaving school and enrolling at PRC could be your first step on the way to your dream job

The employment market is fiercely competitive – employers are looking for more than just paper qualifications and can take their pick from a wide field of candidates. A course at PRC can help!

We offer realistic working environments in our salons and restaurants which will give you the chance to provide services to paying clients, and purpose built workshops for practical studies in construction, motor vehicle and engineering. Our specialist teaching staff have a wealth of professional experience in their various fields which they will pass on to you and our high quality support staff are fully trained and possess vast experience in support for a range of disabilities and difficulties, and are fully dedicated to learner achievement.

Unlike school all of our workshops, labs, salons, kitchens and studios are fitted with the latest industry standard equipment, ensuring that every student is given the best opportunity to learn and succeed. What’s more the College has multitalented specialist staff who have all had careers in the field in which they teach, so you can be assured that you will receive the right training for your next step, whether that be an Apprenticeship, further study, university or employment.

We have lots of things to keep you occupied on-site out of lesson time, including areas for group and independent study, Library+, access to IT facilities and the Internet, food outlets and the student common room.

We also have hair and beauty salons which offer haircuts and treatments to both members of the public and students at a fraction of the price on the high street! As well as an on-site restaurant, all run by college students as part of their training.
