The City of Liverpool College is based in the centre of one of the UK's most vibrant cities. Students are at the heart of everything we do.  The College mission is to provide high quality skills and education to all students, irrespective of their background and underpinned by our core values.

The City of Liverpool College has a long established and successful higher education provision, achieving Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 'Silver' standard, in June 2019.  The College is one of the regional leaders in further education, achieving a 'Good' Ofsted rating in October 2017 , and is a key delivery vehicle of skills across the Liverpool City Region and beyond.

The City of Liverpool College is a medium size higher education provision with direct funding status. Higher education programmes are validated by the Open University, Liverpool John Moores University and University of Huddersfield with over 500 predominantly mature students (64%) from the local region (73%) and from areas with low progression to HE (54% from Polar4Q1-2). Our students are studying a range of over 30 undergraduate programmes at levels 4, 5 and 6. The College also offers Initial Teacher Training programmes at Master's level. The curriculum offer has developed broadly in response to demand.

The College actively engages with national and local initiatives that support access to HE for underrepresented groups.  The College is a member of Shaping Futures (also known as the Merseyside Collaborative Outreach Programme, part of the wider National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP), funded by the OfS). This outreach programme for the Liverpool City Region involves 12 local HE providers and is led by the University of Liverpool.
