The Bedford College Group was formed in 2017 following the merger of Bedford College and Tresham College and is now the largest provider of education in the South East Midlands, with over 15,000 students passing through our doors each year.

Today, the Group is made up of a family of five colleges across Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire: Bedford College and Tresham College in the towns of Bedford, Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough; Shuttleworth College, a specialist land-based college; The Bedford Sixth Form, the only dedicated sixth form in Bedford; and the National College for Motorsport alongside Silverstone race circuit. To widen accessibility to education and training, the Group also has community-based Learning Centres in Bedford, Corby and Kettering which offer IT training.

Our offer encompasses further education, higher education, apprenticeships and workforce training, and whilst each college has its own unique environment they are all united by a common purpose:

To help individuals, communities and society flourish through education by raising aspirations and reducing inequality to create a sustainable future.
