BRIDGWATER & TAUNTON COLLEGE
Bridgwater & Taunton College is located in Somerset, in a strategic position that offers easy access to the rest of the UK via the M5, the rail network, and Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter airports.
The College’s traditional role as a further and higher education college remains key, but workforce training has now become an integral part of its business, and it also caters for individuals of all ages seeking to improve their career prospects by re-training or up-skilling in order to move into, or progress within employment.
Lakes College is located in West Cumbria, in close proximity to the Sellafield site and the location of the proposed Moorside new nuclear power plant.
The college has provided Further and Higher technical and vocational education, training and skills in West Cumbria for decades, most recently from very well equipped and resourced campus on the Lillyhall site, between Workington and Whitehaven. The college maintains excellent partnerships with industry and employers - apprenticeships continue to be a strategic priority, particularly in the STEM areas, with circa 1,400 apprentices currently on programme.
