University Summary

In 1996 it was renamed Dearne Valley College. This coincided with a new £7.5 million pound development on the site of the old Manvers Colliery. In 1999 a sports centre and health club were added, with a synthetic football pitch; these facilities can be used by both students and members of the local community. In 2006 the college celebrated its 10th anniversary of the new buildings.

At Dearne Valley College we provide full and part-time courses and Apprenticeships for school leavers and adults, as well as degrees and other higher-level and professional training.

You can study from entry level through to Level 3 (which is the equivalent level to A-Levels) before choosing to progress on to degrees and university-level courses with us. We specialise in a technical and career-focused training and education, and will provide you with high quality learning combining hands-on and practical skills, valuable work experience and the technical, underpinning knowledge.

Our vocational courses and Apprenticeships will help you develop essential employability skills by involving you in challenging projects, offering you opportunities for trips to places of interest related to your course, participation in guest speaker sessions with industry experts, and the chance to enter regional and national competitions, all supported by training in our industry-standard facilities from lecturers who are experts in their field.
