Macclesfield Learning Zone is a collaborative partnership between Macclesfield College of Further and Higher Education, The Macclesfield Academy (which the College proudly sponsors) and Park Lane School to transform education and training in Macclesfield and the surrounding area.

At the heart of the Learning Zone is a modern, state-of-the-art learning campus at Park Lane. This provides high quality education and training facilities for the whole community. The campus provides a seamless, integrated service to all of those who enrol as students.

The Learning Zone opens up new doors for young people by offering them access to the College's vocational options, wherever they are based. This might be:

  • a greater choice of vocational options at 14 years, as part of the Key Stage 4 curriculum
  • vocational activities which extend or enrich their studies
  • or the opportunity after GCSEs to study academic or vocational courses in preparation for university and future employment.

For adults, the Learning Zone provides high quality, industry standard training facilities and a clear ladder of progression from introductory courses to Higher Education. For employers, the Learning Zone will enable the College to offer an even more flexible and responsive service, at employers' own premises or on the new campus, to enable companies and public sector organisations to up-skill or re-skill their workforces.
