South and City College Birmingham is a vocational college which offers students part time, full time and Apprenticeship courses from level 1 to higher education in a range of subjects.
Formed on 1 August 2012 through the merge of South Birmingham College and City College Birmingham, we provide courses and training to around 13,000 students and have ten campuses and centres across Birmingham.
We are committed to ensuring students have the relevant skills, qualifications and experience required for their future, whether that is to seek employment or continue their education at college or university.
We have exceptional facilities which we continue to invest in, including a purpose built construction centre, hair and beauty salons which are open to the public, a fine dining restaurant run by students, music and sound recording rooms, a industry standard auditorium and much more.
The college is actively involved in the community, with local businesses and has excellent links with industry; this not only allows us to provide excellent opportunities for our students to gain work experience placements, Apprenticeships and job opportunities but for the college to help employers ensure they have skilled workforce needed for the future.
The college is the highest performing general FE college in Birmingham for 16-18 year olds (National success rates 2011/12) and 95% of our students pass their courses. We are committed to embedding equality and diversity into everything we do and have a zero tolerance to discrimination.
