Your next step is one of the most exciting and important times of your life, whether you are leaving school, looking to improve your career prospects or changing direction.
With so many options available it can also be a challenging time: Croydon College is here to help you achieve your ambitions, whatever your age.
Croydon College is an excellent choice for you. We pride ourselves on providing access to opportunity and learning programmes and support to enable you to achieve your full potential; helping you develop your confidence and thirst for personal progress.
The recent £35 million investment in our building and facilities means that we now have an amazing landmark extension, a state-of-the-art Learning Resource Centre, a new performance hall, industry standard recording studios and increased social and learning space. In addition, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall recently opened our University Centre, with degrees validated by the University of Sussex. We are proud of this step forward for Croydon and the growth of our higher education offer.
At Croydon College we are passionate about teaching and learning and its ability to transform lives. Working closely with the community is our business and so is providing learning opportunities for all. We provide learning for every stage, up to university level. This is excellent news for you because we can offer progression routes from the first step of the learning process to a degree or employment. In addition, we provide support to help you develop your wider skills and abilities: for example we are the only UNICEF Rights Respecting college in the UK. The work that our college students have engaged in volunteering across Croydon and the area is astonishing. Over 16,000 hours of volunteering last year brought our community closer together and were testament to how remarkable our students are.
Croydon College is committed to giving you the right skills to get you to your next step, be it further study, university or a job. In today’s tough economic climate, we’ll help you to stand out from the crowd and we’ll work with you to develop the employability skills you will need in your chosen career. To put it simply, Croydon College will give you the edge you need to compete and succeed in today’s world of work.
If you need any further information just get in touch, or come to one of our Open Events. I look forward to seeing you soon.
