Help shape our future

Two roles which will help us meet our ambitions, grow our offers and deliver the very best for students, staff and stakeholders at City College Norwich, Easton College and Paston College. 

City College Norwich is appointing two Vice Principals to lead key aspects of our work. The College is one of the largest in the country, operating from three main campuses in Norfolk and serving students from right across Norfolk and Suffolk. These roles will help us build on the success of the College and allow us to grow and evolve in the future.

Our culture is what makes our colleges succeed. From students to senior leaders, our Ways of Working help shape every aspect of our teaching and learning and the broad range of support which helps us deliver consistently strong results.

Rated 'Good' by Ofsted in October 2021, City College Norwich, Easton College and Paston College deliver a huge range of courses across the whole spectrum from essential skills to postgraduate teacher training. Our support for students with high needs once again earned an 'Outstanding' Ofsted rating.

Our colleges have seen significant capital investment over the past few years, from our Digi-Tech Factory which opened last autumn to a new Advanced Construction and Engineering Centre, which will open later this year. Our financial health is consistently rated as good. 

Where are we now and what comes next?

Hear from our next Principal Jerry White about where the College is today and where the new roles fit with our ambitions and challenges.
