Record numbers of students have signed up to the campuses of Bedford College. More than 15,000 are on the student role call with most at the Cauldwell Street location.
Already the largest provider of post-16 education in the county and sending the most young people on to university and top class apprenticeships, the College is now offering a wider range of degree-level courses than ever before.
Finding out about life outside of school were students who visited the Freshers’ Fairs where they met more than 60 organisations giving them on advice on how to enter the adult world safely and securely.
Among the many offers were deals on meals from “Love Bedford” businesses who love to win custom from the 1,000s of students who pour into the town each weekday.
BedfordBID has close links with Bedford College. Each year it sponsors the huge Hair & Beauty Show at the Bedford Corn Exchange.
