About Bridgend College

Welcome to Bridgend College recently judged to be an Excellent College by Estyn. We are very proud of this accolade and you may be assured that you will receive a positive educational and social experience, where you will be joining over 6000 new learners, studying across five campuses or in the workplace on mainly a full-time basis. For some of you, College is the first step onto your career path having finished at school, while many others are studying to progress up the career ladder or take a different career path.

We offer a wide range of courses, from Level 1 to Degree level, in over 20 vocational areas.

We are Excellent

To receive the very rare double ‘excellent’ in our Estyn inspection is a reflection of the dedication, innovation and passion from our learners, staff, governors and partners.

We are extremely pleased that the high quality of our performance has been recognised in the judgements awarded to the College.

We are very excited about the future.


At Weston House it is our intention to help make the young people who stay with us “All that they can be” by putting our students at the centre of everything we do.

Purpose-built in 1978, within the grounds of Bridgend College, Weston House offers 35 individual bedrooms for young people between 16 and 25 who have a disability or impairment.

The majority of our residents are school leavers but other students come to Weston House, via other pathways.


Some want to improve their skills to get a job or get a better job, others want to be able to help their children at school or learn to use access the internet and enter the digital world.

Whatever the reason, many people have chosen learndirect because they know we can help them-just like we’ve helped thousands of others
