Today's publication of the Higher Education funding Council's (HEFCE) Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) awarded Newbury College its Provisional Status'. The award is given to higher education providers that meet rigorous national quality requirements but which do not yet have sufficient data to be fully assessed'.

In the autumn term of 2016, Newbury College submitted its Annual Provider Review to HEFCE and a review of this confirmed that the College fully meets HEFCE's requirements for quality and standards'. 

This means that:

  • Qualification standards are reliable and reasonably comparable to those across the UK
  • The student academic experience is of a high quality
  • Student outcomes are generally good or excellent and the provider has demonstrated continuous improvement in relation to them.

Newbury College continues to grow its higher education provision with programmes available in Art and Design, Business*, Engineering, Graphic Design, Health and Social Care*, Public Services and Sport.

Newbury College is excited to be developing a new B.Eng. (Hons) degree apprenticeship* with Buckinghamshire New University and is accepting enquiries from those interested in studying on this programme from September 2017. Call 01635 845000 for details.
