Welcome To IEG

Here is a short message from Principal and CEO of Inspire Education Group, Rachel Nicholls

Peterborough College prides itself on providing superb practical facilities to all our students and a strong emphasis is placed upon preparing our students for the world of work.  All of our courses include practical and technical skills development as well as the underpinning knowledge to support progression into further education, higher education, apprenticeships and employment.

We offer a diverse and broad range of courses ranging from Entry Level to Level 6 programmes. These include BTEC and skill based courses, Access to Higher Education courses, HNCs, HNDs and Degrees through our University Centre Peterborough.  We work with hundreds of employers across the region, delivering apprenticeships and bespoke tailored provision to suit their needs.

Our aim is to deliver high quality education and training that responds to the needs of employers and individuals. We have a strong commitment to our students, their families, our community, our employers and our regional partners.  Collaboration, teamwork and excellence are at the heart of all that we do. We work hard to develop a respectful and open culture that celebrates the diversity of our city which in turn creates a caring, friendly and supportive place to learn and work.

If you are considering Peterborough College as a place to study then whatever your abilities or ambitions, I am confident that we will have a course to meet your needs. Feel free to visit us at one of our open days where you can speak to our lecturers and experience first-hand everything we have to offer or email any questions to

I hope to welcome you to Peterborough College very soon.
