Welcome to North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College
North Warwickshire & Hinckley College and South Leicestershire College are part of North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College, and two of the most successful colleges in the region. We offer brilliant teaching and learning, excellent work experience placements and opportunities for students to develop independently.
We offer two main pathways for school leavers – full-time Study Programmes, which are mainly classroom based, and Apprenticeship programmes, which allow you to earn as you learn.
Both routes provide students with a complete learning package, designed to maximise students’ career prospects and widen opportunities for further study at college or university.
Both routes offer valuable work opportunities putting students in a strong position for securing permanent employment in a competitive job market.
Our excellent facilities, strong partnerships with major employers and universities, and excellent international relationships have helped make us a sought-after place to study for thousands of young people.
We offer an exciting curriculum in a wide range of job-related areas, with the option of studying at one of our campuses on a full-time Study Programme or learning skills in the workplace on an Apprenticeship. This guide will explain both study options so you can make the right decision for the path you wish to take.
Students’ learning is enhanced through purpose-designed training areas and industry-specific equipment in a range of areas including CAD Engineering, Hospitality & Catering, Construction and Electrical Installation.
North Warwickshire & Hinckley College’s campus in Hinckley has the best facilities in the region and offers students access to state-of-the-art computing supported by industry-standard software and lecturing staff who are also skilled practitioners.
Both South Leicestershire College’s Engineering and Construction facilities and North Warwickshire & Hinckley College’s Advanced Engineering Centre at the Nuneaton Campus and the Harrowbrook Training Centre in Hinckley have been praised by regional businesses.
Students can acquire traditional skills whist developing competencies in working with emerging technologies. All of our students have access to a wide range of support services including advice on financial assistance.
No matter what your starting point, we will ensure you have the knowledge, skills and support you need to excel during your studies and succeed in your future career.
