This is an exciting time for Hartpury, as from September 2018 we became both a university and a college on a single campus; an amazing achievement in the history of our institution. As a land based residential institution renowned for excellence in sport, equine and land based studies, we aim to provide a unique high quality experience in a focused and supportive environment, challenging our learners in the pursuit of excellence. Hartpury College of Further Education was graded ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in May 2018. The overall effectiveness of leadership and management, the quality of teaching, learning and assessment and the 16-19 study programmes all received the highest grade from Ofsted

Hartpury College recruits students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities onto a wide range of vocational programmes.  Our well regarded Learning Support Department is currently looking for motivated, flexible and conscientious staff.
