The Isle of Wight College was established in 1951, initially offering courses in construction and engineering. It is now a General FE College with a broad curriculum that reflects the needs of the Island community.
The College’s main campus is sited in a central island location on the outskirts of Newport, the county town of the Isle of Wight and the Island’s principal retail centre. As the only Further Education College on the Island we have a record of success that is currently the envy of the sector having achieved a Grade 1 at inspection.
The College has invested millions in the facilities offered, which includes the LRC (Learning Resource Centre) and the Gym. We encourage our students to use the facilities that we offer.
