Mallow College is the largest further education provider in North Cork with students from a wide hinterland across Munster. The College has expanded rapidly in recent years to around 500 full-time day students, offering full-time day courses and part-time night classes: including animal care, beauty therapy, business, carpentry, computing, hairdressing, sports injury, sound engineering and video.

Originally established as Mallow Vocational School in 1932, it was relocated from the town centre to its current location in the 1940s. In 1990 it was renamed Davis College in honour of Mallow-born writer Thomas Davis. In 2001 the secondary school was moved to its current location in Summerhill and its further education section, originally just two courses (business studies and computer studies for adults and secretarial), took up sole occupancy on the "Annabella" campus at West End street where it remains today.[1] In 2016 Mallow College of Further Education was given its own independent status as a College separate from Davis College.

Part of the Cork ETB (Education and Training Board), Mallow College courses are primarily QQI assessed and certified with additional courses certified from IATI and CPA in accounting, ITEC and CIBTAC in beauty therapies, as well as a SOLAS run carpentry apprenticeship course.
