The courses found on this site are based at our state-of-the-art Leighton Buzzard campus. Central Bedfordshire College offers a wide variety of courses at our campuses across the county. For information about other courses, please click here to visit our main website.
Our Skills Centre is based on Chartmoor Road and provides employer-led skills training for the local community in the fast-growing sectors of business and engineering.
We are proud to be working in partnership with SEMLEP, Central Bedfordshire Council and several local employers to bring this high technology training centre to Leighton Buzzard to meet both the economic and educational needs of the local area.
This facility provides the high quality tutelage in business for which the college is known as well as engineering training to young people and adults to work as technicians and experts in these industries in order to serve the employer needs across Central Bedfordshire and the SEMLEP region. There are also progression opportunities into Higher Education through the Universities of Bedfordshire and Northampton and with the college itself.
Key industry partners have been involved in the project from its conception and remain a key feature in its operation of delivering the industry skills for engineering; these include local employers such as BE Aerospace, Vinci Technology, Hone-All, Grundfos, Calex Engineering, BCS and Auto Technology.
On the ground floor of the Centre there are dedicated electronic engineering workshops as well as an impressive 100sqm double height demonstration space. On the second floor there are new classroom facilities. The foyer of the building has a café for the students.
