Not Just Courses. Careers

As a College we pride ourselves on the progress our students make and on the career opportunities we provide.

Harlow College is in the top 1% of colleges for academic progress. This means our students perform better than students studying at 6th form or colleges elsewhere. We are graded Good by Ofsted and have won awards for our innovative approach to learning. Our students get great results, for example, 80% of A Level grades achieved were A*-C. 54% of our BTEC Extended Diploma students achieved DDD (triple distinction).

We have some fantastic links with industry that give our students a head start on the careers ladder.

Our teaching staff have industry expertise and this is matched by industry standard facilities, including specialist workshops, classrooms with the latest technology, as well as great social spaces to relax.

We take your learning seriously, providing a great range of courses to equip you with the skills you need to prepare you for the workplace, an Apprenticeship or for further study at college or university.

Our Higher Education provision includes Access to HE, HNC/Ds, Higher Apprenticeships and Professional Qualifications including NCTJ Journalism, Accounting & Finance and Leadership & Management.

In September 2018 the College, in partnership with Stansted Airport, will be opening its doors to the £11 million Stansted Airport College, which will provide a range of technical and professional courses in the disciplines of aviation, engineering, business, hospitality and events. Stansted Airport serves over 25 million passengers a year.

“I had been out of the education system a long time, so it was quite daunting to come back into a college environment, especially as I didn’t really have any qualifications, but I stuck with it and now I’m going to King’s College University to study Nursing. If you’re not sure about coming back into education I would say ‘go for it – anything is achievable’” Lara
