During the past six years Bedford College has grown rapidly to become the largest college in the region for 16-18 education, apprenticeship training, higher education and part-time education. An amazing achievement given a stable population, new competitors and being based in one of the region’s smaller market towns. Our students’ achievements translate into great results for them: jobs, promotions, university and a more socially and economically prosperous community.
