City College Norwich

City College Norwich is a leading provider of higher, further and community education for the eastern region. With a turnover of £45 million and over 14,000 students, City College Norwich has established a reputation for excellence in academic standards as well as innovations in operational and strategic direction.

City College Norwich is a provider of vocational Further and Higher education. The College provides excellent preparation for students' career development and progression. All courses have strong links with employers and the world of work, meaning that the vocational skills and knowledge that are developed with us are up-to-date, relevant and in demand from employers. The College has extensive links with employers across all of our curriculum areas, from health and social care to engineering, and we continually update our courses to take account of the current and future higher skills needed by employers.

The College recognised early that employers are looking for more than just the relevant skills and qualifications from today’s students. That is why City College Norwich, as part of the Gazelle Group of colleges, is leading the way in providing unique opportunities to develop enterprise and entrepreneurship skills as a key element of every student's course. What this means in practice is that there are actively promoted opportunities to get involved in student-run enterprises – both ‘for profit’ and social enterprises – in order to gain hands-on experience of being part of a small enterprise, managing projects, using creative skills to develop new products or services, problem-solve, and learning how to promote ideas.

The focal point for this work is The StartUp Lounge, our inspiring, state of the art facility for developing enterprise, employability and entrepreneurship skills – the very first of its kind in the country.
