Northumberland College is a further education college based in Ashington, Northumberland. The present site opened in 1957, became the County Technical College in 1961, transformed again in 1987, becoming the Northumberland College of Arts and Technology, and finally settled upon its current status in 1995. [1]

The college’s mission is ‘to provide education, training and services that are of high quality to meet the needs of people and industry in Northumberland and beyond.’

It has a main campus in Ashington in the south east of the county and additional centres at Kirkley Hall, Berwick and Blyth. The college also provides training at a construction skills centre in Prudhoe, which is run as part of the Tynedale Virtual College.

The college offers outreach courses from a number of smaller community venues throughout the county and on its two Mobile Learning Centres, which travel to communities and businesses around the county to ensure training is accessible in the most rural areas.

Northumberland College provides further education courses to school leavers and adult learners in a wide range of subjects, including access and education; art, design and interactive media; business and administration; construction; early years; engineering; essential skills; foundation learning; hairdressing and beauty therapy; health and social care; hospitality and catering; information technology; land based industries; renewable energies; sport and leisure; and travel and tourism.

Higher education courses are also available, these include foundation degrees, HNCs and HNDs, which are run in partnership with a number of universities. The college also runs a wide range of apprenticeships and offers specialist training to employers.
