Founded in 2008 as part of a merger between Dewsbury College and Huddersfield Technical College, Kirklees College has become one of the biggest colleges in the country, offering a wide range of courses and study options.
The college boasts over 13,000 students across full time study, apprenticeships and part time courses, offering students of any age and background one of the best opportunities to achieve their goals in education.
The college is entrenched in the heart of West Yorkshire and boasts nine bespoke centres across the Kirklees region, from two main centres based in Dewsbury and Huddersfield, to specific learning centres in art, animal care, construction, engineering, media and performing arts as well as a brand new centre for process manufacturing.
Kirklees College is also committed to serving the local communities and business throughout the Kirklees region, working with over 1000 employers around West Yorkshire.
With traditional open days postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, @kirkleescollege will be hosting a Virtual Open Day to support its prospective Adult and part-time students who are considering a new career or wanting to learn a new skill.
@kirkleescollege has announced its sporting partnership with @GiantsCT. Commencing in September 2020, this new partnership will see both institutions join forces to form a hybrid team featuring talented players from across the local community on various Further Education courses.
As part of the expansion of the college’s Sports Academy provision, the new Rugby League Academy can be accessed by any student studying at Kirklees College to create an inclusive team that nurtures home-grown talent, not just Sport students.
