Newbury College is a good College and has some outstanding features. This is confirmed by Ofsted and the Quality and Assessment Authority for Higher Education, the Training Quality Standard, Investors In People and Matrix. The College is outstanding for partnerships with its many stakeholders as evidenced by Inspection teams and other agencies, and is firmly placed as a key community resource in the heart of beautiful West Berkshire.

Newbury College has many facilities and resources to assist with the delivery of a variety of training programmes and we have in the region of 1,000 courses on offer. We also provide tailor-made programmes to suit individual business needs. Our premises are some of the best in the area and with our new Engineering Solutions Lab, Skills Centre, Sports Hall and Conference Suite, we are well equipped to provide a conference or business event.

If you are hoping to gain a new qualification by studying full or part-time, become an apprentice, progress to higher education, improve existing skills for employment, find the right course to meet your staff training needs, or simply learn about a new leisure interest - we have a course to meet a very wide range of interests and abilities, both at the College or in a range of community venues. Please see our course pages for further details.

Newbury College is an Associate College of the University of Reading and we also run Higher Education courses with Southampton Solent University.

We are very proud to have achieved certification in the Training Quality Standard. Along with IiP, the Matrix award, and Action for Inclusion this award confirms the high standard and quality of training and development that we offer to the wider community and to business.

If you are an employer and would like someone to visit your business and discuss your workforce training needs, please contact the Business Development Team on 01635 845229. Or, if you are a young person starting out in Further Education or someone who wants a course to motivate and inspire you to suit your own personal development needs or interests, please contact us via the website or call 01635 845000.
