At Central Bedfordshire College, our purpose is to enable our students to achieve their maximum potential with strong support, integrity and love of learning.

Our industry-grade facilities, friendly environment and strong partnerships with local businesses and universities ensure that learners at CBC develop an excellent work ethic in a realistic setting, and are then able to flourish and thrive in whatever path they choose, whether that be the workplace or higher education. We offer a range of courses from Level 1 to HE, including Access courses, so that no student or prospective student is limited by their academic background. We also have a strong provision for students with learning difficulties, reflecting our dedication to inclusion.

Located across a number of campuses throughout the county with a curriculum based heavily around the needs of the region, CBC provides high quality teaching and learning, rated Silver by TEF. Alongside their academic and vocational training, students are provided with exceptional pastoral support from our award-winning Student Services Team (TES FE Award for Professional Services Team of the Year 2018) and Matrix-accredited education, information, advice and guidance from our dedicated Careers Team to ensure positive progression.
