In addition to our Exeter Campus, we have a further training centre in Poole. Our locations have enabled more people to gain access to our training and have helped contribute to the busy, lively learning environment that the college is renowned for. Our academic staff team has also grown, and we employ people who are good team members, relational, friendly, highly experienced, and passionate about inspiring others.
Iron Mill College is a place of creativity, reflection and academic development. We have taken what was so valuable in Iron Mill College’s previous and respected educational history and applying it to the contemporary demands of the mental health and wellbeing professions today. We are large enough to give a good choice of externally validated, nationally recognised professional qualifications that employers will value, and small enough that we all know and value one another within a rich and diverse learning community.
It is an exciting time to join Iron Mill College community and to shape and influence the college's future.
Vision Statement (Iron Mill College will be:)
These shared values will remain at the heart of all that we are, and guide us in all that we do
A very warm welcome to the Iron Mill College! Whether studying at our Exeter or Poole centre, you are about to join a well-established and highly regarded college that is a leading educator in the field of mental health and wellbeing.
My aim is to protect the existing character, values, and warmth of the Iron Mill College, while supporting the growth and development necessary to help the college reach its considerable potential for excellence.
We will not be making this journey alone – we are fortunate to have made some valuable partnerships along the way, including PCI College in Ireland, the University of Worcester, the BACP, UKCP and other professional bodies; and the helping professionals, therapists, supervisors, and placement providers who are so generous with their time and expertise, helping us to support our students in their learning. We value them all immensely.
As a college we want to enhance and increase opportunities for memorable, inspiring, and life-changing learning experiences. Like the ripples that spread across water when a pebble is thrown in, every successful Iron Mill College student will in turn positively impact many hundreds of individuals in the future. I am immensely proud of all of you who have already passed through our doors and are now making such a positive difference in what can be such a difficult world, and equally proud of all who are making the challenging and life-changing journey through training right now.
We have a strong staff team of enthusiastic and experienced lecturers, and administrative staff who work with dedication to ensure the smooth running of the college. Working together, we have become well known for our exceptionally high levels of student care and support.
I look forward to meeting and working with you, as you become part of the Iron Mill College - enjoy your learning!
Principal, Iron Mill College
