About Dudley College of Technology
Dudley College has played a pivotal role in the provision of vocational and technical education in Dudley borough and the wider Black Country for over 150 years. The last five years have been particularly remarkable for the college. In 2012 we successfully completed and opened the first two phases of the Dudley Learning Quarter, catalysing the regeneration of Dudley town centre.
We opened our Skills Hub, enhancing services for employers and also our Employment Hub, helping young people and adults into work. We supported more young people in learning than ever before and achieved a significant increase in the number of apprentices of all ages studying at college and in their workplaces. We continued to extend and diversify our curriculum introducing exciting new programmes.
As a result, in February 2013 Ofsted recognised Dudley College as one of the highest performing general further education colleges in the country.
Dudley College has a vision of by 2016 we will be recognised locally, regionally, nationally and internationally as a provider of the highest quality education and skills programmes. Dudley College will be known as ‘a great place to study and work’ as the Dudley Learning Quarter will be near completion. In addition to our existing buildings we will have created inspirational new facilities for engineering and advanced manufacturing, independent living and learning, academic research and study, sport and outdoor fitness.
