About Milton Keynes College

We operate from two main campuses across Milton Keynes and Bletchley, the details of which can be found here. Welcoming those who want to learn and improve, we focus on meeting individual needs. The College is at the heart of the city’s economic vision and community strategy, in addition to being a major employer with over 1,000 members of staff.

Our sole aim is to be the best general Further Education College in the country and deliver the highest quality education to all learners. Our vision of success is at the heart of all we do. At Milton Keynes College we strive to engrain this in all who walk through our doors.

We build and nurture strong partnerships with the wider community and local businesses with an interest in making Milton Keynes College a safe, innovative and inspiring place to learn in and work with.

Our values

We believe these things individually and as a group. They guide our day-to-day decision making. This is how we set out to achieve them:

To inspire – where everyone motivates, engages, challenges, and stretches each other
To strive for excellence – where everyone recognises their own potential and becomes the best they can be
To demonstrate integrity – where everyone is committed to being open in all we do, to be honest and do the right thing
To show respect – where we listen, consider the views of others and value everyone
To innovate – where new ideas and thinking are generated around people, products and processes.

When colleagues and learners feel that they truly belong at work, they feel more connected, committed, included, and engaged. 

College performance

Milton Keynes College has been rated once again as Good by the government inspectors, Ofsted, with some areas graded as Outstanding.

The College’s teaching and learning also comes in for high praise, with inspectors making a point of recognising the positive and supportive atmosphere at the College.
