Founded in 1888, Blackburn College’s purpose was the provision of technical, employment-focussed education for the people of Blackburn and the surrounding area. Our focus remains the same today. Students travel from across Lancashire and beyond to study at one of the largest Colleges in the UK, on a truly world-class campus, designed to provide high quality learning and acquisition of the skills needed by employers.

For the 5th year in a row, 9 out of 10 of our graduates are in work or further study, just six months after graduation. Our work with over 3,000 employers ensures we are at the heart of business development; our students aiming to become the business leaders of the future. Indeed, some 6 out of 10 of working graduates from 2015/16 now work in the Blackburn area, demonstrating the value of ‘The Blackburn Graduate’ to employers and the global businesses that operate out of our region.

Whether it be A-Levels, a Technical, Apprenticeship or Degree-level course you are considering, Blackburn College delivers relevant, high quality, professional and technical education, training and skills that help you progress into employment and further study. Our students progress to world-leading Universities to continue their studies; this is testimony to the quality of education provided by Blackburn College.

Over the course of 2017/18 we are set to increase the number of 16-18 year olds studying Apprenticeships with the College by over a third. This growth in Apprenticeships comes about as a direct result of our engagement with employers, which was also acknowledged in the College’s recent Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) Higher Education Review. You can be sure that if you study an Apprenticeship with Blackburn College the training you receive will be high quality and enable you to progress in your career.

In 2017 we enjoyed significant A-Level grade improvements with a 7% increase in A* to C grades, a 5% increase in A* to B grades and a 5% increase in A* and A grades. These achievements come alongside a 100% A-Level pass rate in 18 subjects enabling our students to progress to a range of top Universities across the UK.

As you will see, we are incredibly proud of the tremendous success of our students and graduates and the range of opportunities available to you to prepare for the world of work.
