The College first opened in 1992 following an amalgamation of the previous four existing colleges across the city. Until late 2013, the College was known as Liverpool Community College.
We are now proud to be The City of Liverpool College, serving more than a third of all 16-18 year olds in Liverpool and educating almost 20,000 students a year. Our students are spread across our 500 academic and vocational courses, offering them the widest choice in the city at the highest standard of learning.
The size and breadth of the college puts us at the heart of the City. Our daily work brings us in contact with partners and stakeholders of all kinds; from large corporations and household names and frequently we work with Liverpool City Council. We work closely with local training providers and employers in the private, public and voluntary sectors to deliver the widest range of further education courses, delivered with practical experience.
Our close working relationships with businesses ensures that we keep up to date with what employers need, but crucially ensures our students are equipped with the skills to find employment and succeed.
We are heavily involved in a wide range of innovative programmes. As a Gazelle college, we promote an enterprising culture for students to develop confidence and entrepreneurial skills to help create jobs for the future.
