BMet is a large general FE college with approximately 16,000 learners and three main campuses based in Birmingham: James Watt College at Perry Barr, Matthew Boulton in central Birmingham and Sutton Coldfield College.
A third of our learners are aged 16-18 and are on full time programmes, and most of our adult learners are on part-time courses and professional development courses.
The broad curriculum offer includes: A Levels and vocational qualifications, apprenticeships, access to higher education, part-time adult professional development, entry level courses as well as full and part-time degree level study programmes. BMet is focused on ensuring student progression, through pathways into employment and its curriculum is shapred to respond to employer demand.
The college’s higher education provision (across all three colleges) is supported by four regional university partners who have worked with us to provide first class opportunities over many years. Together they continue to look at ways to develop courses, so they are always industry relevant.
The college also has a very strong sporting offer at Sutton Coldfield College as well as sporting academies available to all BMet students.
