Hello, and welcome to our website!

Just a heads-up, we're close to rolling out a shiny new website and we've had to make some changes which may affect the way our current course information is displayed. If you have any questions, please get in touch.


Kendal College Business


Kendal College is situated in Kendal on the edge of the Lake District National Park and is the leading training provider in the South Lakes. We know that skills shortages can be a major barrier to growth but Kendal College has the facilities, equipment and vision to be the first choice College for local employers in the area.

We are proud of the investment of over £27million in new facilities and equipment,  including a state-of-the-art brand new Engineering & Science Centre, Animal Rescue Centre, specialist Construction facilities and work is currently underway on a £3.3 million development of the Northern Arts and Media Campus. The College specialises in Further and Higher Education, as well as training for businesses at all levels, including apprenticeships, NVQ and bespoke business training.

Full-time & Part-time Courses

We offer a great choice of professional and technical courses for students of all ages. Many are vocational programmes, developed with industry requirements in
mind, to provide employers with the skills, knowledge and experience required for the workplace.

We have also recently introduced a suite of A-Levels which can be studied alongside another vocational course or as part of an A-Level study package.

Short Courses & Professional Qualifications

Developed with awarding bodies and industry partners, many of our professional courses allow employees to gain an industry-recognised qualification which will ensure your workplace meets the necessary
legal requirements and improves the skills, knowledge and productivity amongst your workforce.
