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.

The opportunity to work with such a diverse group of people has been invaluable. Working at Bridgend College is like being with family; it doesn’t ever feel like ‘work’.

We used the Sony Theatre and Conference facilities at Bridgend College for a national event on Mental Health and Children’s Services. The venue is exceptionally good with excellent breakout rooms and an amazing central auditorium. The catering was of a very high standard and the technical support could not have been more responsive.
