Barnfield is the largest college in Bedfordshire and Luton, with four centres in Luton and one in Bedford.
It also runs an extensive network of community-based courses, an expanding range of higher education programmes and is a major operator of Apprenticeships through Barnfield Training Services.
Following its most recent Ofsted inspection report, it became the first further education college to be designated a national Learning and Skills Beacon. Barnfield is also home to six Centres of Vocational Excellence.
We are really excited about the improvements we have made to the College over this last year, making it an even better place for you to study.
From September we are offering our usual range of courses plus additional courses requested by students over the past year. These range from English courses in your local community to University Level courses in our Higher Education Centre.
Barnfield College has courses designed to help you prepare for an apprenticeship or help you get that job you have always wanted. We even have courses to help you improve your computer skills, or learn a new craft such as jewellery design.
Our Gateway Services are designed to support you while you are studying, whether it be helping you re-learn how to study, offer career guidance or help you to access financial support. There is also a range of support services to assist with independent study.
We all work closely as a team here - students, academic staff, technicians, industry representatives and Gateway Services – to enable you to make the most of your time with us.
We are really looking forward to welcoming you to Barnfield College and wish you every success in your studies.
