Welcome to Newbury College

Newbury College is committed to high quality learning opportunities for individuals and employers in West Berkshire, and the surrounding areas.

We offer around 1,000 full- and part-time courses from our purpose-built campus on Monks Lane, training centre in Calcot, and across other venues in West Berkshire. The full-time courses cover a range of vocational subjects from Entry up to HND, Foundation Degree and Degree Apprenticeship Level. Students from the age of 14 can study on our Pre-GCSE and GCSE programmes. As well as various Maths and English courses, we offer adults the opportunity to study on many leisure or professional programmes.

Newbury College works with employers in the local area offering a wide range of apprenticeships. By choosing Newbury College as a training provider, our Business Development Team supports your recruitment campaign and helps you find the perfect candidate to match your vacancy. Along with our experienced assessors, the team works alongside you to ensure the apprenticeship journey is a success for everyone. Apprenticeships are available for all age groups from 16 and above.

Newbury College is also skilled at developing training packages specifically for individual companies and organisations. We offer a full training-needs analysis to establish specific training requirements, and then deliver on-site training at timings to suit the needs of your business.

Our facilities are some of the best in the area. Recently this includes the addition of a new engineering solutions lab to support students working in the engineering industry. We also have a training restaurant and two beauty salons that are open to the general public. Our construction centre includes an area for bricklaying and carpentry. And we have a Sports Hall that can be used for enrichment activities or hired out for external events and sports.

Newbury College is graded by Ofsted and the Quality Assurance Agency as a ‘Good College’. Our advice and support services meet the Matrix standard and we are proud to have a silver Investors in People accreditation.

If you are an employer looking for an apprentice or bespoke training, please contact our Business Development team on 01635 845229. If you are a young person starting out in Further Education, or an adult looking to develop professionally or discover a new hobby, why not visit on one of our Open Days and explore your options. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
