Introducing ADA: The Advanced Digital Academy

We’re excited to offer a sneak peek into our new cyber and computing training venue at Cheltenham Campus.

Kickstart Job Vacancies

There are 200 paid work placements available in Gloucestershire's best businesses NOW, from marketing and management to engineering, hospitality and more.

For those aged 16-24, in receipt of Universal Credit, who want to climb the career ladder. 

Gloucester Campus

Our buzzing Gloucester campus is set in a prime location in the heart of the City, beside the historic Gloucester Docks which sees regular food festivals throughout the year and the Tall Ships Festival. 

The College is across the water from the shops, cinema and restaurants of Gloucester Quays, a popular tourist destination – many offering GC student discounts.

The Gloucester campus is set in the grounds of Llanthony Secunda Priory, which dates from 1135. In fact the Quays area provides an interesting mix of state-of-the-art and historic – with the majority of the old warehouses around the water now renovated as desirable housing, offices and leisure.

The campus hosts one of our Enterprise Labs where you can get support to think through or access funding for our business ideas, or connect with a crowd of like-minded students who hope to be their own boss one day, at our monthly Enterprise Society gatherings.

You’ll find a range of classes, workshops and studios across four blocks around two dramatic open spaces. It’s especially well-known for its outstanding vocational facilities, business and media studies, early years, motor vehicle maintenance and sport. Our Graduations Hair and Beauty salon is well-known throughout the city and always busy, and we’re proud of our creative and technology courses.
