About the College

Anthony Bravo - Principal

“Welcome to the BCoT website. Here is the information you need for making one of the most significant choices in your life – what to study as the foundation for your future career.

We know that BCoT is not your final destination but it is the pathway to your future. Our aim is to guide you along that path by providing high quality courses, relevant to you and your career choices, backed by the latest technology and practices in a supportive and inspiring environment.

As you will see, what makes BCoT different is that we design our courses, workshops, laboratories and other facilities to be of industry standard. This gives you the best start to your career, whether you leave us to go to university, an apprenticeship or the workplace.

The quality of BCoT services and courses is recognised by national awards. These include; the Matrix Quality Standard for our Student Services information, advice and guidance, two Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVEs) in Construction and Retail for the highest quality education and training for industry and, most importantly, the Training Quality Standard, which is the national award for working with industry currently only held by 26 other organisations in England.

We believe in listening to YOU. You will have the opportunity to be involved in focus groups, to represent your course on our learner parliament and, at a ‘Student Voices’ event, have the opportunity to talk frankly with me and other senior managers. I always welcome the opportunity to discuss your issues.

I know you will find the website interesting and that you’ll want to find out more. So, why not come into college to see for yourself and talk to other students and our staff? Such research is really important when you are about to make that choice about what to do next.

I really do look forward to welcoming you to BCoT.
