Hello and welcome to South Devon College, your dynamic 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 and progress. 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 students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, all of which are designed to help you develop your skills and confidence and progress into employment in your chosen career or to higher education.

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 campus locations to find out more information about the courses available to you, and see what the next step in your career or education could be.

Our wide ranging provision means that you will always be able to find the right route for you, right on your doorstep in South Devon. We offer excellent qualifications in professional and technical vocational diplomas at all levels, a huge range of apprenticeships, university degrees, English and Maths support, part time adult qualifications and bespoke professional training.

We are delighted to be recognised by employers and students alike as one of the top Further Education and Tertiary Colleges in England. Top results and satisfaction reflect our wide curriculum, with personalised programmes which are delivered by dedicated and passionate tutors, all of whom have good industry experience. Recently, we have received Foundation Degree Awarding Powers from the Quality Assurance Agency and approved by the Privy Council, further recognising excellence in higher education and higher skills, which will lead us into further new developments over the coming years.

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 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.
