About Us

Nottingham College is a newly formed college, a result of a successful merger between New College Nottingham and Central College Nottingham, both graded Good by Ofsted in 2016.

Nottingham College is now one of the largest colleges in the UK, with around 40,000 full and part-time students and apprentices coming through its doors every year.

Nottingham College is looking to be a different kind of college. It is completely re-designing its curriculum around the needs of the region’s employers – making sure that the students who leave us, do so with the right skills to take them into the world of work.

It will focus its attention on making great connections with employers and businesses for the benefit of students. Putting it simply, Nottingham College will offer you the very best opportunity to get a good job locally.
