About this University

Telford College is a further education college in Telford, Shropshire, England. It operates from one main site and many in-company training sites and community-based courses spread out across Shropshire and the whole of the United Kingdom. During 2017 the college improved its Ofsted rating to Grade 3.

The college was founded in 1892 by Charles Walker as the Centre for Art and Science Classes and was originally based in Oakengates, Shropshire. From 1913 until the Second World War it was based in the former Coffee House and Recreation Centre in Market Street which was since demolished by the New Town Corporation.[1] The college moved to a new site, built in 1926, down Hartsbridge Road becoming the Walker Technical College. In the 1960s it opened a larger campus on Haybridge Road in Wellington which became the part of new town of Telford. By the 1980s the college was renamed Telford College of Arts and Technologycommonly abbreviated as TCAT. The Bridge Centre (literacy and numeracy department) opened in 1990 followed by a new Learning Resource Centre and the Haybridge Restaurant in 1997.

The old Oakengates Site (now closed) on Hartsbridge Road in March 2010. The building has since been sold and converted into apartments.
