We strive to achieve high academic standards, to provide outstanding facilities, to offer a broad range of courses and to give every student the chance to succeed. We aim to enable students to realise their full learning and skills potential through an exciting, quality curriculum that prepares them for the world of work or for higher levels of study.
At Kendal College we are constantly introducing new courses that respond to local and national employment needs. We continue to pioneer new programmes from entry to postgraduate level, which allow you to study locally and gain valuable and relevant qualifications. A typical full-time course at Kendal College will require you to attend between two and four days per week, sometimes including work placements or practical workshops. If you are studying an apprenticeship, you will usually attend college one day a week.
The majority of our courses are based at our main site. The College completed a £12.9 million new build project in 2008, which includes reception, conference and seminar suites, hairdressing salons and 250-seat cafe with external balcony. The site also features the stunning Construction and Heritage Centre, which features cutting edge facilities for carpentry and joinery, brickwork, plumbing and electrical installation.
