At Wakefield College in West Yorkshire we provide the very best opportunities for everyone to learn and succeed. Serving over 11,000 part time and 3,000 full time students across three main campuses in Wakefield, Whitwood and Thornes Park, we’re one of a very small number of colleges in the UK that can boast two Centre of Vocational Excellence (CoVE) Awards.
The City of Wakefield sits at the heart of West Yorkshire, and at the heart of the Wakefield district is Wakefield College. The College is the largest college in the District and has an impressive track record, having provided education and training in Wakefield and its surrounding area since 1868.
Today, the College has its base in three major areas as well as delivering learning in community settings all over the district.
Our College is committed to working in partnership with local schools, employers and learning providers to transform learning, attainment, achievement and progression across the district. We have good relationships with schools across the Wakefield district and the College has a broad mix of former pupils from across the region.
