Calderdale College

Description

We offer a wide range of full and part time courses in addition to work-based learning opportunities and we provide inspiring learning for life (our students range from 14 to 84 years old). Our history, tradition and expertise is in serving the needs of the local area and far beyond. We do so by providing learning that helps students move into a career, progress in their existing career or completely change direction! Many students have used qualifications gained at the College as a springboard to successful careers.Our current students chose to study with us because they were attracted by the range of subjects that we offer, the different and supportive learning environment and the vocational nature of our courses. Higher award students also like the fact that they can study for a qualification locally.How much you engage in the non-study aspects of College life is entirely your choice but for those that do, we offer an enrichment programme for our full time students that cannot be matched locally and an active Student Union. Furthermore we have an excitng arts programme with regular performances by our performing arts and dance academy students. The Colleges Rugby League team are the current North of England Champions and our Football Academy is also the youth team for FC Halifax.Key FactsCalderdale College engages with over 5,000 learners from sites across Calderdale.
