At Harlow College we take learning seriously, providing a great range of courses to equip students with the skills needed to prepare for the workplace, an Apprenticeship or for further study at college or university. Our teaching staff have industry expertise, matched by industry-standard facilities, including specialist workshops, classrooms with the latest technology, as well as great social spaces to relax.

Our excellent employer links and work placements give our students first-hand experience of the world of work.

Our students make Harlow College a special place – there are great opportunities to get involved
in College life, whether you choose to become a Digital Ambassador, volunteer in the community or take part in the National Citizen Service.

We are graded Good by Ofsted and have won awards for our innovative approach to learning. In November 2017 the College was recognised as an Apple Distinguished School for its enterprising approach to transforming learning, teaching and assessment. Apple Distinguished Schools are centres of innovation, leadership, and educational excellence that use Apple products to inspire creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. They showcase innovative uses of technology in learning, teaching, and the education environment and have documented results of academic accomplishment.
