The College first opened in 1992 as City of Liverpool Community College, then Liverpool Community College following the amalgamation of four existing colleges across the city. In late 2013, the College was renamed The City of Liverpool College.
The City of Liverpool College currently serves more than a third of all 16-18 year olds in Liverpool, and educates almost 12,000 learners each year. We offer the widest choice of subjects in the city, with our students engaged in a broad range of academic and vocational courses at all levels, all delivered to the highest standard of learning.
The size and breadth of the college puts us at the heart of the city and brings us in contact with partners and stakeholders of all kinds, including large corporations with familiar household names as well as ongoing collaborations with Liverpool City Council. We work closely with local training providers and employers in the private, public and voluntary sectors, offering the widest range of further education courses, all offering practical experience as part of the programme.
Close working relationships with businesses not only ensure that we keep up to date with what employers need, but also, more importantly, that we are able to equip our students with the skills needed to find employment and future success in their chosen career.
We are also heavily involved in varying, innovative programmes and promote an enterprising culture for students in which to develop confidence and entrepreneurial skills that will help create jobs for the future.
