The college supported 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 were its main campuses.

John Wheatley College provided courses in construction, hospitality, care, creative industries, art and computing, and provided outreach courses for adults across the Glasgow East Learning Network. It also ran 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 supported people recently arrived in Glasgow who spoke English as a second language.

The college merged with Stow College and North Glasgow College on 1 November 2013 to form Glasgow Kelvin College.
