Yeovil College has been serving the communities in South Somerset and North and West Dorset for 130 years.
The College was first formed in 1887 when Somerset County Council began formally organising Science and Art classes in Yeovil. In 1947, the first Principal was appointed to lead Yeovil Technical College and when secondary education in the Yeovil Borough was reorganised in 1974, Yeovil College became one of the early tertiary colleges to be formed in England.
Today, Yeovil College remains passionate about its role as a key provider of education and training in South Somerset and North and West Dorset. It remains committed to its role as a tertiary college for the whole community and currently supports around 5,000 full and part-time students.
Developing the Skills Employers Want
Working with over 800 regional and national employers and the local community, Yeovil College regularly reviews the courses and study programmes on offer, introducing new qualifications to meet demand. We are also one of only 21 colleges in the country to be involved in the work placement pilot element of the newly Government announced Technical Education courses (T levels).
