Somerset College is a vocational college with a rich mix of further and higher education. We are dedicated to expanding and developing opportunities for Somerset residents to gain occupational and employment skills. We believe that skills are vitally important to the future of our economy. It is our wish that more young people, and parents especially, see vocational training and education as a sound alternative to the traditional A level route. We believe that vocational training and education can and does prepare young people with the critical employment skills necessary for work and life. We are passionate about the development of tomorrow's workforce and will tirelessly work with business' to achieve this.
We aim to create a college for enterprise and employment, and be a force for change within the community, creating careers and stimulating business growth.
Employers are demanding ever more contemporary and higher level skills in new technologies and in the way people work and interact. Specialist occupational training, especially for adults, is crucial for business success and it is our intention to ensure that anyone trained or educated at Somerset College has the most up-to-date skills and knowledge to enable them to compete for employment.
