Overview

Established in 1909, we are proud of our long standing reputation for providing excellent levels of high quality teaching and training across Leicestershire.  

With links to leading universities and established professionals, our courses have been developed with an emphasis on employability and aim to provide the students with the relevant academic and practical skills needed to succeed within the workplace.

Many of our programmes are vocationally based and offer the opportunity to apply what they have learnt in class to job roles within the industry. The College is friendly and supportive and we allow the students to develop and gain the necessary independence and responsibility expected of higher level study.

Study options are flexible with full time, part time, community based, distance learning, workshops and short courses all available. Some courses are also delivered in the workplace - Loughborough College is a major provider of training support to employers in the East Midlands region.We are proud of Loughborough College’s reputation for learning excellence, reflected by the praise we received in the latest round of independent inspections, establishing our place amongst the best general FE colleges in the East Midlands. OFSTED and the Adult Learning inspectorate were impressed by the College’s teaching, student support and value for money, awarding us a ‘good’ rating. They also praised our wide range of enrichment opportunities and excellent resources for sport, exercise and fitness.Whilst mainly providing for individuals and organisations in Leicestershire we also have many students travelling to study with us from out of the county and from overseas.
