MERGER LATEST: FAQs

Will a bigger college mean reduced quality? 

The Bedford College Group, even with the addition of Central Bedfordshire College, will not be a monopoly but it will be even more resilient and stronger than before. The Group’s track record shows that quality has not been sacrificed as it has expanded, always remaining at least Grade 2 (Good) in Ofsted inspections. Central Bedfordshire College is extremely healthy financially and The Bedford College Group’s previous mergers have demonstrated that quality is consistently maintained during and after the transition process in each case.
