Bristol's Filton College is one of the fastest growing and most vibrant Colleges within the South West.
The College provides a vast range of further education full-time courses for over 2000 14-19 year olds in both academic and vocational areas.
Over 10,000 adult learners from within Bristol and South Gloucestershire study part-time courses at the College or at over 50 locations within the community that are delivered by our team of community based tutors.
Nearly 250 international students study at Filton on either English Language training courses or a range of our academic and vocational programmes. We have recently opened a recruitment office in Guangzhou, China to attract further international numbers.
The College has gained a good reputation for the quality of its teaching and learning and has developed a comprehensive portfolio of higher education programmes that attract nearly 200 learners per year.
Over the last 3 years, the College has spent nearly £30 million redeveloping its main Filton Campus and to also build a new vocational campus, WISE which specialises in Sports, Visual and Performing Arts. WISE is home to the College's Bristol Academy of Sport, South West Academy of Dramatic Arts and the Bristol School of Art.
Filton College has recently opened an education centre at Bristol Zoo Gardens to deliver its extensive portfolio of animal and land-based courses, and also utilises resources with our partners at Slimbridge and Horseworld.
The College was the first college in the country to achieve two Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVEs). We offer CoVES in Aeronautical Engineering and Gas Installation and Maintenance.
We are also proud of our close links with industry and our focused employer engagement programme.
