Oldham College has won a prestigious Princess Royal Training Award (PRTA) for its flagship Teaching for Distinction programme.

The accolade – the first ever for a college in the Greater Manchester City Region – recognises our clear commitment to making this “the best place to learn and work” in the borough.

HRH Princess Anne, as President of the City & Guilds Group, established these awards in 2016 to recognise employers with outstanding training and development programmes that have a direct impact on business performance.

Teaching for Distinction (TfD) is Oldham College’s exemplary approach to improving learning standards and student achievement. Co-developed by our Quality Team and Tom Sherrington, educationalist, it is a comprehensive programme drawing on leading work in the field to apply best practices in teaching, learning, curriculum planning and assessment.
