On 8 June 2017, New College Nottingham and Central College Nottingham joined forces to become Nottingham College.

Nottingham College is not simply be a place where you come to study, gain a qualification and then leave. It is a centre of excellence for teaching and learning but more than is a place where careers are made, a place where you are given every opportunity to learn and develop a full range of skills for the workplace and a place where you are introduced to your future employers.
