Newcastle College is a Further Education and Higher Education college in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. The college has a complex history, being an amalgamation of various colleges and training providers. The college is a part of a larger corporation called NCG (formerly the 'Newcastle College Group'). Ofsted downgraded the college to 'good' following its inspection in 2012, having been graded 'otstanding' in both 2004 and 2008. The college has attracted further controversy in recent years, with accusations of workplace bullying, high redundancies in teaching staff, and the ejection of inspectors from the premises.
