About the employer

South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS) is the new college formed by the merger between Stroud College and Filton College. These two successful colleges merged in February 2012, to give our students more choice, greater opportunities and a wider range of facilities from a single, larger college.

At SGS, we have three main campuses - Stroud, Filton and WISE - as well as many local community venues, and we welcome around 15,500 full-time and part-time students of all ages every year. We also have centres in the centre of Bristol, at the West of England Academy of Art and at the Bristol Zoo and Gardens.

As a merged college, we now offer an even wider range of vocational and academic courses, in an even greater range of subjects.

Even though we are a bigger college, we are committed to giving each and every one of our students the best possible education.
