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 and across other community venues in West Berkshire. The full-time courses cover a range of career-focused vocational subjects including engineering, computing, digital, health and social care, leadership and management, public services and many more, with progression opportunities up to master’s degree within the on-site University Centre Newbury (UCN).
Our full-time, career-focused programmes encompass Vocational Qualifications, maths and English GSCEs, Work Related Activities and Progression Coaching. There are also many professional part-time and apprenticeship programmes for adults, that provide opportunities for career progression alongside your current role.
Newbury College also specialises in the support of learners with both physical and mental needs. Our overall mantra is careers not courses, and this includes supporting all learners into independent living or employability. To achieve this, our proactive and forward-thinking employer engagement team support learners at all levels and all abilities, matching them to employers and careers, leading to meaningful outcomes.
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, including an engineering solutions lab to support students working in the engineering industry, and the development of digital labs within the UCN. We also have a training restaurant and two beauty salons that are open to the general public. Our construction centre includes an area for electrical installation and carpentry. The Sports Hall is used for enrichment activities and available to be hired out for external events and sports. Find out more about hiring facilities at Newbury College.
