Welcome to North Warwickshire & Hinckley College

Welcome to North Warwickshire & Hinckley College

North Warwickshire & Hinckley College is part of North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College – one of the largest and most successful colleges in the region. We offer brilliant teaching and learning, excellent work experience placements and opportunities for students to develop independently.

We offer two main pathways for school leavers – full-time Study Programmes, which are mainly classroom based, and Apprenticeship programmes, which allow you to earn as you learn. Both routes provide students with a complete learning package, designed to maximise students’ career prospects and widen opportunities for further study at college or university.

Both routes offer valuable work opportunities putting students in a strong position for securing permanent employment in a competitive job market. Our excellent facilities, strong partnerships with major employers and universities, and excellent international relationships have helped make us a sought-after place to study for thousands of young people.

We offer an exciting curriculum in a wide range of job-related areas, with the option of studying at one of our campuses on a full-time Study Programme or learning skills in the workplace on an Apprenticeship.

Students’ learning is enhanced through specialist training facilities and industry-specific equipment in areas including CAD Engineering, Construction and Electrical Installation. Our fabulous Glebegate restaurant and high-quality salons provide commercial environments for our students to hone their skills to paying customers. Our Creative Arts campus in Hinckley has the best facilities in the region and offers students access to state-of-the-art
computing supported by industry-standard software and lecturing staff who are also skilled practitioners. Both our Advanced Engineering Centre at the Nuneaton Campus and the Harrowbrook Training Centre in Hinckley have been praised by regional businesses.

We have also joined forces with HORIBA-MIRA, Coventry University, Loughborough University and the University of Leicester to create an engineering centre with a difference. The MIRA Technology Institute (MTI) will open in September 2018 and offer world-class automotive facilities to train the next generation of top engineers. All of our students have access to a wide range of support services including advice on financial assistance.

We actively promote competitions and encourage students to compete. With our strong involvement in WorldSkills UK competitions, including national competitions held at The Skills Show every year, students who work hard and demonstrate talent can go on to participate in competitions at a local, regional, national and even international level representing the very best in young, UK talent.

On 1st August 2016, North Warwickshire and Hinckley College officially merged with federation partner, South Leicestershire College. Having worked together successfully as a federation, it made good business sense to take that relationship one step further, a move which will allow us to expand our courses by sharing expertise and resources and improve support for our students.

No matter what your starting point, we will ensure you have the knowledge, skills and support you need to excel during your studies and succeed in your future career.

Best wishes
