Why Choose Bedford?

fantastic reputation' to: With over 70 years experience in the education industry, Bedford is one of the most widely-recognised, highly-regarded and ethical training organisations in Sydney today. Our student-centred approach to teaching produces graduates who are highly sought after by employers.

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 enroll at university (with one-year credit) if you want to.

The College has maintained small class sizes since its inception (usually <20 students). We feel that this is imperative in order to ensure that every individual student’s needs are met; which in turn provides students with the opportunity to achieve his/her own personal best learning outcome.

At Bedford College we aim to provide a warm, friendly environment where a feeling of care and concern for every student is fostered. Most students find that they make friends very quickly and receive support from teachers, student services and other students when necessary. Some students may require counselling to assist with course progress and attendance requirements, accommodation issues or personal issues – at Bedford we support students in many ways.

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.

At Bedford we truly believe that we provide the best possible training in an on-campus setting. Whilst we strive to be flexible in our training delivery, we firmly believe that the mix of on-campus (3 days per week), Online (1 day per week) and workplace (1 day per week) training is the perfect learning model and that which provides students with the very best learning outcome. It’s a tried and tested model – it’s successful because it works.

At Bedford, we pride ourselves on staying abreast of the ever changing world of technology and our computer laboratories house the latest industry-standard computer hardware, software and audio visual equipment available.

Apart from our computer laboratories, every classroom in the college has computer and audio visual equipment for use when delivering training, watching videos, online learning and presentations.

Our laboratories and break-out areas are of course fully-networked and internet access is available throughout the College. Each student has a roaming profile and a personal College email address which can also be accessed from home.

Bedford students have remote access to classrooms by clicking the Bedford Online button on our website and entering their username and password. This is a great facility for students wanting to access class work from home outside our normal college hours. Class notes, revision exercises, handouts, assessments/assignment information, website links, etc. can be collected and posted to the classroom. Students can also participate in forums, chats and surveys.
