Over 5 decades of education, training and business engagement

Barking & Dagenham College has been serving this community for 50 years.

1961/62 saw our first intake of students and recently we celebrated our 50th anniversary with a range of events including our Summer Fun Day and Market, to which everyone was invited.

In June we welcomed our community to our Rush Green Campus to share in our Summer Fun Day & Marketing as part of our 50th Anniversary Celebrations.

We are an inclusive College for all age groups and we also welcome our community to come and share our facilities.

We have a luxurious commercial beauty salon – The Salon – which offers professional treatments but at a pocket-friendly price.

Our training restaurant – The Chef's Hat – is also open to the public offering the highest quality cuisine prepared and served by our trainee chefs.

Our gym is also open to the public.

An award-winning College for your Community
In November 2011 we were presented with the Times Educational Supplement's "Outstanding entrepreneurship in learning and skills" award at their inaugural national Further Education (FE) Awards. This award acknowledges the emphasis we put on giving our students real work experience, providing them with the work-ready skills that employers value.

There's still time to apply
We continue to take applications right through until 1 August 2012, so if you haven't yet decided what course to take in September there is still time. Once you have applied we will be in touch to let you know what to do next and how to enrol with us to confirm your place.

After 1 August 2012 there is still time to get on a course, but instead of completing your application form you would come straight to one of our Summer Enrolment dates. During summer enrolment you can meet the course tutor, have an assessment, an interview and enroll all on the same day.

Summer enrolment starts in July and continues right through into September.
