Vision

To be a place that people trust; a place where people are inspired to fulfill their potential.

Mission

Our Roadmap starts with our mission. It declares our purpose as a college and serves as the standard against which we weigh our actions and decisions.

We will deliver great learning opportunities, inspirational educational experiences and real practical skills training for the young people, adults, businesses and the diverse communities that we serve.

Public Value Statement

To position Stockton Riverside College as a catalyst for educational, economic and social change within our communities

Stockton Riverside College is committed to being actively involved in the economic, social and cultural development of its communities through collaborative and transformational partnership working. We will use innovation and enterprise to create great learning opportunities and inspirational educational experiences; in doing so we will increase the education and skills levels for the practical benefit of the people, businesses and communities that we serve.

Tone of Voice

Our tone of voice takes its direct influence from our College Values.

We are not brash, showy or arrogant. We don’t make claims that we can’t uphold and we don’t boast. We are quietly confident; we talk in a friendly voice, one that wants to help, and has a casual, polite manner. No big claims, no jargon, but a smart, self-assured tone of voice that really connects with people.

Primary Purpose

And when all is said and done our primary purpose is for people to enjoy their time with us, pass exams/qualifications & go on to do bigger & better things.
