Our Place

Delivering excellence in a first class environment is key to everything we do at Solihull College & University Centre. A £31 million redevelopment scheme has transformed our Blossomfield Campus into one of the UK’s most exciting and modern conference and training facilities, set in landscaped surroundings.

We work hard to develop new and existing relationships with other organisations, and to raise our own performance and aspirations in every respect.

These ongoing efforts have not gone unrewarded. We became the first college to win a Best Business Award – which aims to highlight excellence in public and private sectors across the nation. We have also achieved the Training Quality Standard in recognition of our commitment to delivering quality training and development solutions for employers ­an achievement which many organisations aspire to and of which we are justifiably proud.

A Great Place to Meet
