Welcome to Bedford College
Bedford College is a well-established (since 1944) not for profit, training organisation, registered by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) to deliver nationally recognised training courses in New South Wales. The College has a long-standing reputation for excellence in training in a small, caring, Christian environment. Our training strategies and our exceptional teaching staff provide students with the maximum opportunity to achieve their own personal best results.
Over the years dozens of colleges have come and gone – and the decision on which training provider to choose has become increasingly difficult for prospective students. This is largely due to the influx of new colleges in recent years but also to concerns about the quality of training provided and the unethical practices of some training providers.
In all this time, Bedford College has maintained its reputation as a provider of high-quality training and honest and ethical practices. The College has a student-centred approach to training and sets the benchmark by which other training providers are measured.
Bedford College has a Christian ethos – however our students come from a wide variety of races, religions, cultures and beliefs. An open access and equity policy governs our enrolment practices and the College is committed to inclusiveness and mutual respect for all individuals.
Whilst the College is now more than 70 years old, we strive to remain at the forefront of training provision and current industry needs. Our industry partners drive our training practices and we endeavour to ensure that our graduates acquire the skills, knowledge and attributes that employers are seeking. You could say that we’re old – but definitely not old fashioned – quite the reverse. Our state-of-the-art facilities are testament to our commitment to substantially invest in College facilities and resources – and of course in our students.
Of course the best training in the world is useless if it doesn’t lead to a successful career. The employment success of Bedford graduates is unsurpassed, with the vast majority going straight into full-time work on completion of their course. And the ability to provide students with automatic (guaranteed) entry (with credit) into university (with no ATAR) means that Bedford Graduates have a distinct advantage over graduates of other colleges.
