Education and training

Education in Bedfordshire is flying high with three Further Education Colleges and one University; all of whom cover the length and breadth of the three Local Authorities of Central Bedfordshire, Bedford Borough and Luton Borough and beyond.

Further Education and Higher Education in Bedfordshire has never been more readily accessible, so if you are leaving school and want to embark on your career pathway; are an international student wanting to study in Bedfordshire; are interested in undertaking a degree; want to study part-time to improve your job prospects; or would just like to learn something new, then look no further.

Experience Bedfordshire, is also working in partnership with Educational organisations to promote learning and to engage in programmes of skills development for those looking to work within the Hospitality and Visitor Attraction Sectors. One such example would be the highly successful Central Bedfordshire Hospitality Skills Project, which has been undertaken with the Local Authority, key local employers, Central Bedfordshire College and the Sector Skills Council, People 1st, supporting unemployed people back into work within this sector; raising the standards and equipping them with the necessary skills to enable them to find work and filling local vacancies within the area.
