Activate Learning colleges

The Activate Learning group brings together secondary, further and higher education, along with workforce training, management consultancy, commercial businesses and social enterprise. It’s the new name for the Oxford & Cherwell Valley College group.

Our goal is clear: to transform lives through learning.

The Activate Learning colleges are Banbury and Bicester College, City of Oxford College and Reading College. They deliver our university-level education programmes in partnership with leading local universities.

Our colleges are vocational specialists and have been established for many years. Each college has undergone major investments and transformations to make sure the teaching and learning experience is better than ever for students.
