Our Mission, Values and Vision

Our mission is to provide students with the skills and knowledge needed to secure rewarding careers in the industries and communities we serve.

Our values

We have a set of core college values, which provide our staff and students with a sense of purpose and identity.

We believe in:

  • First-class, first-choice technical education
  • Respect for each other and the environment
  • A positive, can-do attitude
  • Striving for excellence in all that we do

Our vision

Our vision is to be recognised nationally as a leading provider of specialist land-based education and training, which in turn supports sustainable local and regional economic development.

Supporting our students

Riseholme College is an open and welcoming environment which attracts a diverse student population and provides equal opportunities for all. We strive to support individual needs so that all students can achieve their full potential.

It's important to us that students are fully prepared for the future, so we focus on developing their employability and ensuring their skills meet local and national needs.

Students will remain at the core of everything we do, with safeguarding being a key strategic driver. The safety, health and wellbeing of our students - both residential and non-residential - is an absolute priority.

Working with industry

We actively engage with industry and the local community, optimising the use of our specialist teaching facilities, rural environment, farm and estate.

Riseholme College works with an expanding range of key industry partners with an ambition to further grow its reputation, both regionally and nationally, as a centre of technical excellence and innovation with class-leading facilities.


Sustainability is at the core of the college’s strategy and underpins our ambition for growth and quality improvement.
