Why Bedford is the best choice

After 70+ years in the education industry, our reputation is arguably our most valuable asset. We have a student-centred approach to teaching and we endeavour to retain our position as one of the most widely-recognised, highly-regarded and ethical training organisations in Sydney today.

We are a high quality, nurturing learning environment for everyone. We know you’re ready for your next adventure and we want to support you and see you succeed. Our students come from almost every background, culture and belief. This is a place for you to learn new skills as you grow professionally and personally.

Unlike a university course which takes 3-4 years to complete, a Bedford College diploma course requires a commitment of just one year. In just one year you will have the qualifications – and the skills and knowledge – to get a satisfying, well-paid job; and you can still enrol at university (with one-year credit) if you want to.

Bedford’s teachers are industry trained professionals dedicated to the professional and personal growth of our students. Teachers participate in annual professional development to ensure that they are aware of the latest teaching techniques and strategies. And most importantly, our staff ensure that our students are always our number one priority.

For students wishing to undertake further study on completion of their Bedford Diploma – our formal articulation agreements with universities provide the means to do this.

All Bedford Diploma courses provides graduates with GUARANTEED ENTRY (with credit) into a number of high-ranking Australian universities. It’s true to say that there are currently Bedford Graduates enrolled in almost every university in NSW and our list of university partners continues to grow.

(See the University Pathways section on this website for more information).

Graduate employment success is a focus for every student and every teacher at Bedford. Our long-standing partnerships with some of the largest employers in Sydney is testament to the standard of training that we provide. Bedford Graduates are sought-after by employers – some organisations visit the College every year and provide job opportunities to our students.
(See Graduate Employment Program for more information).

At Bedford we are fortunate to have long-standing relationships with some of the largest companies in Sydney – many of which employ Bedford Graduates year after year. We liaise regularly with our industry partners to ensure that we provide students with training that’s specifically designed to meet the needs of industry – the content is ‘relevant’ to the work environment today.

What that means for the Bedford Graduate is that they have confidence in their knowledge, skills and ability once they enter the workforce.
