South Tyneside College is a large further education college in South Tyneside in the United Kingdom, with its main sites in the towns of South Shields and Hebburn. The college offers part-time and full-time courses for both young students and adults alike. The college was formerly known as the Marine and Technical College, and was founded by Dr Thomas Winterbottom, a former surgeon-general in Sierra Leone. The college is still one of the largest merchant navy training colleges in the United Kingdom, and attracts students from as far afield as India and Africa. Courses are offered across the whole spectrum of marine education including navigation, operations, mechanical and electrical engineering, communications and catering.
The college was formerly based in Ocean Road, South Shields where there is now a large bar/restaurant called Kirkpatricks. There is also a marine simulation centre at the main Westoe Campus. There are more college sites all over South Shields such as the Marine Survival Centre on Wapping Road, the Radar Station next to Ocean Beach Pleasure Park, and the South Tyneside College Planetarium and Observatory
