John Wheatley College was founded in 1989 and has its main campuses in Easterhouse and Haghill in Glasgow, Scotland.

The college supports learning throughout the communities of east Glasgow, working in partnership with the city council's community planning teams, with Glasgow Regeneration Agency and Glasgow Life, with local housing associations and voluntary organisations to provide neighbourhood learning centres connected to the wireless Glasgow East Learning Network, the twin hubs for which are its main campuses.

John Wheatley College provides courses in construction, hospitality, care, creative industries, art and computing, and provides outreach courses for adults across the Glasgow East Learning Network. It also runs a significant youth programme in the networked learning centres, and at the Bridge in Easterhouse, in partnership with voluntary and statutory youth work providers, supported by both the City Council and Glasgow Housing Association.

The college also supports people recently arrived in Glasgow who speak English as a second language.
