About us

Bridgend College is a Further Education (FE) College supporting more than 7,500 students and employing over 750 members of staff across our four campuses in Bridgend, Pencoed, Queens Road and Maesteg.

From small beginnings in 1923, we have grown to become a large education provider and major employer in the area, offering an extensive range of courses across a number of vocational areas and levels.

Our courses range from GCSEs to Honours Degrees and we offer part-time and full time study opportunities, as well as short hobby and leisure courses through our Community College. We offer a portfolio of higher education programmes, working in partnership with Cardiff Metropolitan University and as a collaborative partner of the University of South Wales. We also offer higher education courses awarded by Pearson and CPCAB.

We work closely with businesses and employers. We want businesses to thrive in a buoyant, resilient local economy, and be able to access quality talent pipelines right on their doorstep. Our bespoke training and flexible opportunities can help organisations drive economic success and achieve growth.
