Welcome to South Devon College

Stephen Criddle

Hello, and welcome to South Devon College, your Ofsted 'Outstanding' local college, where we can help you achieve your goals, whatever they are.

Here at the College, everything we do is built around your experience as a student, and helping you make the most of your time with us. We have an unwavering passion for learning, and pride ourselves in delivering excellent programmes of study. We offer a wide range of courses and qualifications for learners of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, all of which are designed to help you progress into employment in your chosen career.

A key focus of our culture here is to 'Inspire the community through learning for all', which is why we are committed to providing exceptional, free and impartial advice and guidance through our award-winning Helpzone team. You can contact our team or drop in to any of our centres to find out more information about the courses available to you, and see what the next step in your career or education should be.

Our wide-ranging provision means that you will always be able to find the right course for you, right on your doorstep in South Devon. We can offer entry level and functional skills qualifications in English and maths, a variety of national and vocational diplomas at differing levels, traineeships, apprenticeships, university degrees, part-time adult qualifications and bespoke professional training.

In 2014, we were delighted to be recognised by the Skills Funding Agency as the best Further Education and Tertiary College in England, based on learner success rates and retention. These results reflect our exemplary curriculum, which is delivered by dedicated and passionate tutors, all of whom have industry experience.

We take great pride in the success of our students, and I speak from experience when I say that our tutors and lecturers find no greater satisfaction than seeing our past students go on to achieve great and remarkable things, which happens year after year.

So, please feel free to visit our campus by attending one of our open events, and see everything that we have to offer. Thank you for considering us as the people to help you achieve your goals, and I look forward to welcoming you to South Devon College in the near future.
