Swindon College is a medium-sized, general further education college operating mainly from one site near the town centre. With a turnover of around £21 million it offers courses primarily in work related areas and has industry standard facilities in a number of these, including construction, engineering and catering.
Swindon College offers the widest range of full-time courses in the area with a mix of learning and training; preparing students both for employment and for university study. We also offer excellent success and progression rates.
Our industry-standard facilities – including Engineering, Construction, Hospitality and Catering, Hairdressing, Beauty and Art and Design – make us the first choice for those considering vocational (work-related) courses in the region.
Our new purpose-built Construction Centre also now provides excellent facilities for our Brickwork and Plastering students on our main campus at North Star.
At Swindon College we put students first. We are large enough to offer a full range of courses and facilities but small enough to care about individuals. All students have the benefits of a personal tutor and a team of highly-experienced professional teaching staff.
We offer a range of courses at different levels. Many of our students enter further education programmes, achieve and then progress on to full-time higher education courses here at the college or at universities around the country. Swindon College offers university-level courses at HND/C, Foundation Degree, Degree and even Masters (postgraduate) level.
The college wants to ensure that you find the right course for you and our friendly Student Services Team is here to assist you with your decision. You will be fully supported throughout your course and in every aspect of college life during your time with us. The college’s success rates have risen significantly over the last four years and it was awarded Grade 1 Outstanding status by Ofsted in 2013.
The college also has an Outstanding (Ofsted) Train to Gain (training for those in employment) provision and a further 2,650 students achieved qualifications through this route last year either in the workplace or in college. The college was awarded the Matrix Standard in 2010 and the Training Quality Standard in 2011, respectively recognising the quality of its advice and guidance and its high standards of business training and work with employers.
