If you share our passion for success then you are in the right place, and in good company. Every year 12,500 students of all ages choose us because they want to succeed.

They want the highest quality technical and professional training that will get them into university, straight into work, or will help take their career to the next level.  

They want to benefit from industry-standard facilities that are among the best in London.

They want award-winning support that’s been described by the government’s inspectors (Ofsted) as “outstanding”.

They want to benefit from our close links with employers. From the real work experience that will help their CV stand out from the crowd, to the insider know-how that helps launch careers.

Success isn’t about age, or about the level of study you start at. It is all about attitude, hard work, and commitment to achieving your goal. 

If you are passionate about success, we look forward to welcoming you to Barking & Dagenham College.
