West Nottinghamshire College formerly known as West Nottinghamshire College and Vision West Notts is a further education college with the main campus situated in Mansfield, and Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, England. The college was formed in the 1970s from an arts and technology college dating back to 1928.
The college offers further education to approximately 19,000 students in full and part-time education including courses for 14 - 16 year olds in collaboration with local schools. The programmes include the majority of GCSE and A Level courses, access to higher education, and vocational apprenticeships that include bricklaying, plumbing, carpentry, gas fitting, painting and decorating, construction management, driving passenger vehicles, forklift truck driving and railway engineering. A variety of community and adult courses is also provided across the local area. The college is a Centre of Vocational Excellence (CoVE) status for engineering specialised in construction, logistics and care. A 2008 Ofsted report accorded the school a Grade 1 (outstanding) on all inspection points. But a 2012 inspection the college lowered the rating from Outstanding to good overall with some inadequate and satisfactory areas.
The College was originally originally called West Nottinghamshire College but on September 1st 2011 it was re-branded Vision West Notts, because of the new name not containing the word college the college was renamed again to Vision West Nottinghamshire College. The word Vision however is often omitted and it is also often still referred to as West Nottinghamshire College.
Campuses and sites 
The college operates two campuses in Mansfield, several smaller sites including a logistics and construction academy in Kirkby-in-Ashfield for 600 students, and around 100 further affiliated outreach venues in the Mansfield and Ashfield area and the largely urban corridor along the M1 motorway route between the counties of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. 
Royal visit 
On 20 February 2009, the college's Construction and Skills Logistics Academy was visited by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales who unveiled a commemorative plaque to mark his visit to the new Construction and Logistics Skills Academy..
The Inspire and Achieve Foundation 
In 2009, college principal Asha Khemka established the Inspire & Achieve Foundation. The Foundation is a registered charity created to improve the prospects of young people from regeneration areas such as Mansfield.
