About Us

Exeter College is an award-winning, world-class College. We are Devon’s only Ofsted Outstanding Further Education College. Our vision is to shape the future by delivering excellence to realise the ambitions of our learners, city and region.

This year was a strong year for our academic results. We had record progression to high-tariff universities.

We were also named best in the South West for employer satisfaction in Apprenticeships. As an organisation, nationally we are in the Sunday Times Top 100 Not for Profit Employer list.

Who are we? - Exeter College is a thriving and growing tertiary College which places teaching, learning and student success as our top priority. We enjoy an excellent regional reputation with an ambition to be an exceptional college.

An Ofsted Inspection in 2022 resulted in the College retaining the impressive accolade of Outstanding. The College also scored the top assessment of ‘strong’ for its approach to meeting the skills needs of the area. This makes Exeter College the first College in the country to achieve the highest judgement in both elements of Ofsted’s new enhanced inspections.

We have high expectations of our students and staff and each year their combined efforts result in excellent exam grades, outstanding training successes and brilliant music, art, sports and community achievements. We welcome students of all ages and abilities and our tutorial and learner support programmes are designed to meet their needs; challenging them to reach their full potential.
