Central College Nottingham is a further education college based over ten sites in Nottinghamshire, England. The college was formed from merger of Castle College Nottingham and South Nottingham College.

South Nottingham College was founded in 1971 in West Bridgford, while Castle College, Nottingham, was formed on 1 June 2006 from the merger of Broxtowe College and The People's College, Nottingham. The People's College was the oldest further education college in England, having been founded in 1847.[citation needed] Following a public consultation, which ran from December 2010 to January 2011, it was decided that Castle College and South Nottingham College should merge.[1] The colleges officially merged on 1 July 2011.[citation needed] The merged college was renamed Central College Nottingham in November 2012.[citation needed]

Today the college employs over around 1000 full-time staff.[citation needed] Its main centres are at West Bridgford, Beeston, Clifton, Ruddington and the City Centre.[citation needed]

The college offers courses from level 1 entry and foundation programmes to HNDs and foundation degrees.[citation needed]
