Life outside the classroom

Fulfilling enrichment programme

Each college has its own dedicated Enrichment Officer, focusing on how you can make the most of college life outside of the classroom. Activities may include trips, events, volunteering, excursions and much more. You’ll be so busy having such a good time at college that before you know it, your course will be finished and you’ll be ready to take on the world!

Sports academies

Our specialist sports academies offer dedicated training in mens and ladies football, rugby, golf and netball. Our academies offer the opportunity to gain coaching qualifications alongside your studies with the possibility of work placements too! You could take part in fixtures around the UK and could be in with the chance to apply for USE university sports scholarships. There will also be opportunities to represent the college at the regional and National Sports Championships in a variety of sports.


If you enjoy playing sports or keeping fit, you will love our gyms and sports halls. Save valuable time by grabbing a quick workout on your lunch break or if you’d prefer, stay after class and have a session with your friends. If you’re on a fitness or sports course, you will also benefit from our range of cardiovascular, resistance equipment and free weights.

Refresh & go!

Many people love Costa Coffee and Starbucks. Whether you are an avid coffee lover, simply enjoy a cup of tea or love an iced fruit smoothie, our colleges won’t disappoint. All of our colleges have a Costa Coffee or Starbucks, making it useful for those days when you need a little pick me up. We don’t want to sway you but Sutton Coldfield College has both!
