About this provider

Central Bedfordshire College was established in 1961 in Dunstable and has grown to serve Luton, Central Bedfordshire and the surrounding areas.

Recognised by Ofsted as a "good college with exemplary features" we have recently invested in a new state of the art facilities in Dunstable. Ofsted says "senior leaders and managers have forged very strong partnerships with employers and local partners, and use these links well to ensure that the curriculum meets local and regional needs." Our apprenticeship offer is heavily based around the economic needs of the region, the skills learners need to find work and the needs of the employers.

We have a dedicated Apprenticeships team that will be able to provide you with expert advice and support.
