Kidderminster College is a post 16 Comprehensive College in Kidderminster, England providing full- and part-time adult education.[1] In 2009, around 140 pupils aged 14 to 18 from other local schools were also following vocational courses at the college. In 2003 the college moved from the Hoo Road site to its new town centre campus, and also operates outreach centres around Kidderminster and the surrounding Wyre Forest area. In a June 2009 report, Ofsted rated the college with Grade 2 (Good) for its overall performance.[1] The College offers courses which specialise in creativity, technology and art including NVQ courses in hairdressing, engineering, business administration, and construction, and collaborates closely with local employers on Skillfast, Train to Gain, and Goskills programmes.[1]
