Welcome to City College

Over many years, we have forged a bond with companies across the city and the wider region that is based on what they specifically require.

 Put simply, employers trust us to make sure that the training we provide for our students meets their needs and aligns to business objectives.

As the city’s anchor institution for skills training, our courses combine subject specific knowledge with an emphasis on employability. We are able to do that for a number of reasons. Compared to a large university City College Plymouth is a smaller, more personalised institution, so the education we offer is person-centred and hands-on, delivered by industry-experienced lecturers with first-hand experience of the sectors they teach.

We work with employers to identify the skills they need to reduce the gap between education and employment. And as an employer ourselves with an innate understanding of what’s required, we involve local companies in the design of our courses to ensure our students enter the world of employment ‘work ready.’

We keep our course sizes smaller on purpose, so that when employers are looking to upskill and develop existing staff, we can be flexible and nimble in our response, being sure to deliver precisely what your business requires. We will fit around you – our offering is bespoke, with standards written around job roles, so you can bring on your staff to meet the growth needs of the business, and make it possible for your staff to work and study at the same time.
