Welcome to Barnet and Southgate College!
BIGGER AND BETTER
We’re a large college in London with over 13,000 students, delivering more than 20 subjects across three main campuses. Joining us means being part of a large and vibrant community that benefits you as you prepare for the workplace or university. The diverse environment offers an excellent opportunity to meet a broader range of people and a larger college brings with it bigger and better facilities with state-of-the-art campuses.
RELEVANT TO YOU
Whether you’re looking for a course to progress onto university, a specific job or an apprenticeship, what’s paramount to us is being in line with the needs of our local economy and working closely with strategic partners to adapt the content of courses to ensure it’s relevant to employers and university progression. We offer a broad range of full and part time courses in: A Levels, foundation degrees, technical and professional qualifications, vocational training, work skills training, apprenticeships plus education and employment pathways for people with learning difficulties and disabilities.
EVOLVE AND SURVIVE
In 2017 we opened CETEC (the Centre of Excellence for Technology Enhanced Care) and the BSC Centre for Dental Sciences, both at our Southgate Campus. One of our key aims as a college is to address the lag between the emergence of new technologies and the skills needed to maximise them. We plan to become the London Hub for telecare and assisted living technologies’ training and our new dentistry courses and apprenticeships will ensure that our students receive industry specific skills leading to the right job.
Deconstructing perceptions around vocational jobs and working closely with employers and economists are all vital components to our success. We continually analyse the jobs market, filling any skills gaps that may be developing with the appropriate courses, so you’ll be proud to be training with us, safe in the knowledge that you’ll be job ready.
Employability is at the core of everything we do; work placements and industry experience are integral to most courses and it’s this experience that gives our students the competitive edge when looking for a job or securing a place at university. The future economy needs a vocational and technically skilled workforce, at Barnet and Southgate College we’ll expand your horizons and help you align your skills with the jobs that are out there, plus you’ll be joining a friendly, supportive and successful college.
