Bradford College's history in providing education dates back to the early 1800s. Its roots can be traced back to Baptist Joseph Farrar along with other working classes, non-conformists, and businessmen who led the revival of Bradford Mechanics Institute in March 1832. Back then, the institute focused on essential skills in writing and arithmetic taught by volunteer teachers and depended solely on funds raised from lectures, exhibitions, excursions, and concerts. After the merger with Margaret McMillan College of Education in 1975, the college became the country's first institution to combine art, technology, and teacher training and was subsequently renamed to Bradford College.
Today, Bradford College is the country's largest provider of higher education outside the university sector with almost 3,000 higher education students and over 20,000 students taking courses, training, and professional development every year. Students as young as age 14 or older can choose from a wide range of science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths (STEAM) courses. Bradford College received a Grade 1 Outstanding for English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) and Grade 2 Good for Sports, Engineering, Foundation English, Foundation Mathematics and Business Administration in the latest report by Ofsted, an independent inspecting and regulating body that reports to the parliament.
