The Cornwall College Group is committed to enriching the lives and creating new opportunities for all members of the Cornish community. This is reflected in our mission statement: “To provide Cornwall with a high quality student experience, celebrated through academic achievement, personal development and employability”
Established in 1929 to meet the training needs of local industry, Cornwall College has now grown to be the largest further and higher education college in the UK with an average of 45,000 students.
In August 2001 Cornwall College merged with St. Austell College, creating cross county coverage focussing on all vocational subjects making us a major player on the national scene.
Cornwall is a beautiful, dynamic county with a rich industrial and cultural heritage. As a region it doesn't fit a national mould,and as a college, neither do we.
Adaptive, responsive and creative; we are constantly evolving and developing provision that is right for you, your career and the future of Cornwall.
The Cornwall College Group is the county's largest education and training provider. We support 35,000 learners of all ages each year, 2,000 of whom are studying at university level.
Our achievements are plentiful, and our proven track record of over 10,000 apprentices in the past ten years makes us the most successful provider of apprenticeships in South West England.
We know the world is changing on many fronts. The challenging local and global economy means you need relevant and industry-focused skills and qualifications to create the future you want. Our expertise is in teaching you these skills, and more, as a Career College for the South West.

The answer was to become a brilliant career college with the core purpose of 'Making Learning Work'.
