Sandwell College

Providing vocational courses and A-Level studies for students.

The iconic Sandwell College Central Campus towers over West Bromwich, with the heavily subscribed A-Level Centre on the other side of the town.

With the majority of their full-time students aged 16-18, Sandwell College offers courses designed to prepare them for the modern workplace (such as Engineering, Beauty Therapy and Web Design). Many of the vocational courses for school leavers have 100% pass rates and a large proportion of A-Level students get straight into University.

Higher Education courses are available, providing the necessary skills to prepare students for the next step in their education in a variety of different fields.

The state-of-the-art Central Campus contains a number of specialist facilities including a specialist automotive centre, beauty and hairdressing salons, computer suites, construction workshops, engineering and science labs on top of a fashion and photography studio, sports hall and theatre.

Trainee dental nurses practice in a simulated surgery while Travel and Tourism students train in a real aircraft fuselage.

Sandwell College also welcomes a large number of adult learners for a variety of full time courses, part time courses and short courses, flexible enough to fit around their life but comprehensive enough to offer a complete qualification.

Their courses range from Entry Level tasters through to Foundation Degrees, with Level 5 vocational programmes and Continuing Professional Development courses also on offer.

Another major feature of the college is their expanding apprenticeship programme and broad range of training courses, ideally suited to meet the needs of local employers. A specialist business team can even provide work-based learning alongside bespoke training and short courses.
