Background of Bedford college
Bedford College is a high education college based in Bedford, Bedfordshire, England. The college is part of the Collab Group of high performing schools. Since World War II, various higher education courses have been added to the Cauldwell Street campus, which was the part of the Bedford College. The college's six-story tower block was established on June 19, 1959, after which the college became commonly known as Mander College of Further Education. The Bedford college was later named after Sir Frederick Mander, the Chairman of Bedfordshire County Council, during the tower's construction. The college's building was erected at around £ 282,510, and up to £ 4,085 for external works.
In 1976 the Bedford college joined two teacher training institutions and formed the split-site Bedford College of Higher Education. Until 1992 the Bedford college remained in that form while the Further Education colleges became independent entities separated from local education authorities. Bedford College was finally formed as a Further Education Institute staying at the Cauldwell Street campus to concentrate on its provision within the educational sector. The Bedford college's academic areas were separated in 1994, after which the Bedford campus of De Montfort University was founded. However, later it merged with the University of Luton to form known the University of Bedfordshire.
Currently, Bedford College continuous to hold the Higher Education division and offers many select teaching qualifications and foundation degrees in association with the University of Bedfordshire.
