The City of Liverpool College occupies a unique space in the Liverpool City Region. We offer an unparalleled breadth and depth of courses to a diverse variety of students across a wide-ranging curriculum: from entry level to degree; from apprenticeships and vocational skills to higher education and professional courses; from short, sharp courses focused on upskilling and career progression to full-time provision that develops the next generation of talent for the City Region’s businesses. Every year we enrol over 10,000 students from across the City Region, coming together to form a diverse and inclusive student body. Our students benefit from dynamic links with employers and communities and a strong sense of place; the College has a long and rich history within the City of Liverpool and strong links to the communities and people that it serves.
