We offer a wide range of full and part-time courses, Apprenticeships and professional and leisure courses.

Learning in a Further Education College is very different to traditional classroom teaching. It’s practical, promotes independence and it’s all about employability. 

Ofsted have now graded HRC as ‘Good’ and state ‘The College places particular emphasis on developing learners’ employability skills, enhancing their learning through work experience and links with major employers’.

We work with over 400 local and national employers, so we know what they are looking for when they are recruiting.

At Hertford Regional College, our courses are specifically designed with work placements or real-life briefs to help you determine an area of specialism for your future career path or further studies and to enhance your CV. Our Broxbourne and Ware Campuses offer exceptional facilities mirroring industry standards, so you will gain valuable life skills in realistic working environments.

98.6% of our Apprentices found employment after completion of their programme.

You will be taught by excellent tutors who are experts in their field and determined to help you succeed. They will support you every step of the way and make your learning experience enjoyable and memorable. Our supportive careers advisers are also on hand to help you with CV writing and preparing for an interview.

After completion of your course, you can choose to progress your qualifications further, go on to university or enter the world of work.

83% of HRC students who applied to Higher Education secured a place (above the national average of 77%). 

Embrace all that HRC has to offer and let us be a part of your new learning journey!

Facilities available

Our state of the art facilities have been purposefully built and designed to industry standards, providing you with valuable life skills in realistic working environments.

Our classrooms are equipped with electronic Smartboards, allowing you to interact and learn in a range of ways, using different media. Fully resourced Conference, MAC and IT Suites contain the latest and most advanced technology to support your learning.

You will have access to a wide range of books, journals and electronic resources in our library and learning resource centre, which include quiet study areas.

You can dine in our Silver Service Restaurant, The Atrium or indulge in a pamper treatment at our Inspires Hair and Beauty Salon. Our fully equipped gym and fitness suite can help you improve upon your fitness skills or allow you to undertake sporting activities during your spare time.

Depending on your chosen area of study, you could make use of our spacious construction, engineering and motor vehicle workshops to enhance your skills, release your creative flair in our performing arts studios and theatre or train in our child care and care suites that mirror a classroom and care home.

It’s important to have all the right facilities to learn in, but it is also important to have time to enjoy socialising with your friends, which is why we have integrated social areas into both our campuses. This gives you space to play pool, table tennis, eat in our refectories, or enjoy a Costa Coffee
