School Description

Bedford College Group is a large general further education college. In August 2017, it merged with Tresham College. The group has multiple sites across Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire. The largest sites are in Bedford, where it has a town centre college and a separate sixth-form centre. It also has a site in Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough and at Shuttleworth College, a land-based site in central Bedfordshire. The group has additional learning centres in community locations, including Bedford, Kettering and Corby, as well as in the National College for Motorsport based at Silverstone. Leaders offer education programmes for young people in all subject sector areas. The largest are health and social care and art and design. At the time of the inspection, there were around 5,500 young learners on study programmes, around half at level 3. A similar number of learners were on full-time and part-time adult learning programmes. The 2,500 apprentices predominantly study engineering, motor vehicle, construction and business administration. Most are on standardsbased programmes. 130 learners are in receipt of high-needs funding, and most of these are in specialist provision. At the time of the inspection, Bedford College did not work with any subcontractors.
