Our College has a rich and diverse student population and our vision is to provide an inspiring learning environment for all learners of any age.
Our community goes beyond the City of Canterbury with students traveling from all parts of East Kent to study technical and vocational education to work towards achieving their ambitions. Learners have access to a range of programmes including further education, access to higher education, part-time courses, short courses, apprenticeships and supported learning. Our programmes are designed to support progression to university and work with access to unique learning opportunities.
At the College you can build your confidence, learn new skills and prepare for employment or university. Find out more about life as a student at Canterbury College and keep up to date with upcoming events by visiting our news and events page. We offer the widest range of pathways in the area, allowing you to specialise in a subject you enjoy while our professional-standard equipment and facilities allow you to train with the tools used in industry.
Our tutors are industry experts and will teach you the skills and knowledge employers look for. Strong industry links will enable you to take your learning outside of the classroom through providing industry placement opportunities.
Community is at the heart of everything we do at Canterbury College and as a student here you will put the skills you learn in the classroom to the test as you take part in our award-winning Community Weeks, helping to give something back, while giving you confidence in your abilities. If your plan is to go on and study further at a university our lecturers and support staff can help you prepare your personal statement, get you ready for interviews, plan your finances and help decide which university is best for you. In areas such as Animal Science and Visual Arts you can even stay on at Canterbury College and study all the way to a degree. Click here to view our higher education courses.
Adults-only courses are available, all of which are designed to fit around your life. Be it a part-time BTEC to start a new path, an evening course that dives into a budding hobby, or a professional course that means you stay on top of your industry requirements. Whether you are coming from school or are an adult wanting to retrain, Canterbury College look forward to providing you with many opportunities for your next step.
