Introducing the Devon Colleges Group 

“The region’s catalyst for growth and development”

The Devon Colleges Group launched in 2016.


As Devon’s four principal and high-quality further and higher education colleges, Plymouth, Exeter, Petroc and South Devon have a proven track record of effective collaboration, with a long history of serving local communities. Working together we are raising the education and skills aspirations of residents and employers in Devon and beyond; supporting individuals to achieve and succeed. 


Each year, we contribute approximately £130m to our local economy, whilst achieving an even bigger long term impact through increasing and improving the education and skills of local students and businesses.

Together, our four award-winning Devon colleges play a pivotal role in the educational, economic, social and cultural prosperity of the region. We are purposefully committed to collective and strong collaborative working for the benefit of those working and living in Devon and the wider region. Sustaining an effective partnership, we work closely with, and alongside, other education providers and our strategic partners to ensure that there is a wide range of world class learning opportunities throughout Devon, which are available to all. 


The four colleges deliver education, skills and training to over 50,000 students each year - from young people aged 14 - 19 to adults; from entry to Degree and higher level; from the most able to some of the most disadvantaged; to those in the workplace and to those studying on our college campuses.
