Highest Ranking FE College in the UK

We are officially the best FE College to work for in the whole of the UK

It was recently announced at the Best Companies award ceremony that Bridgend College was listed as number 28 in The Sunday Times Best 100 NFP Organisations to work for 2017.

It is an annual ranking of Britain’s happiest and most motivated workforces. Its publication each year is a highly anticipated event in the UK’s business calendar.

This respected award is further demonstration of the College’s commitment to both its staff and learners.

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.


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
