In the past decade, this part of Buckinghamshire has undergone rapid change, and the pace of change is intensifying. Growth in employment, particularly in the service sector, allied to new housing development, has meant increasing demands on education and training which the College continues to meet.

We want every local business to have staff with the skills and knowledge needed for commercial success in this information age.

In addition, we want to help to create and be part of a life-long pathway of learning, so we are building on the links we already have with other providers of education and training, including schools, universities, professional associations and voluntary organisations.

Despite the relative prosperity of the area there are many within our community for whom education and training are but a distant memory. We want to create and re-kindle a love of learning which promotes self-confidence and a belief that we can fulfil our dreams. This is the experience of many of our students. We strive to ensure that the time people spend at Aylesbury College is one of discovery and personal enrichment.

As we enter into a period of rapid change following our complete new build, we remain focused on working alongside, and meeting the needs of, each student.
