Located at the heart of Calderdale, our main campus is on Francis Street, Halifax, West Yorkshire.
The College is the largest provider of further education and apprenticeships, and the sole provider of higher education in Calderdale. This doesn’t tell the whole story though…

- We are rapidly expanding our T level provision ensuring that our co-created curriculum meets the current and future needs of students and employers.
- The College has a significant external funding provision including our RISE provision that helps businesses to grow by offering support, training and funding.
- We have recently set up The Engineering Centre, a new campus in Brighouse that provides engineering and manufacturing study programmes and apprenticeships.
- We are a key partner in the local community and across the Leeds City region, working closely with private sector employers, public and voluntary organisations to achieve local priorities that benefit all our residents.
