Centre Welcome

Welcome to City Skills Centre

City Skills is a Centre of Excellence in Construction, Hair and Beauty and offers a range of courses for those where English is not their first language.

Located close to the heart of Salford and University of Salford, City Skills delivers first class teaching in first class facilities. Our construction workshops are outstanding and provide students with the very best facilities in which to learn. Our commercial Hair and Beauty Salons ‘Aspirations’ are open to the public and enable students to get first hand work experience.

Whilst City Skills is one of our smallest centres, it means that students have great access to all of the facilities such as the café, gym, games room and social spaces.

City Skills has a number of new facilities for 2016/17 including a new Digital Learning Zone, games room and social spaces and refurbished classrooms making it an amazing space in which to study.

Lots of additional events take place at the centre, so you will get to know students from other courses and enjoy other activities outside of your main lessons. These could include fundraising, trips and visits and a number of clubs such as sport, craft and music. Lots of additional optional courses take place for students to join such as driving licence theory and first aid, meaning our students have a great time, learn even more new things and really enjoy life at College.

City Skills is well served by both public transport and the FREE* College buses. Students have access to ample free parking, meaning travel could not be easier.
