About us

This year we are extremely proud to be celebrating our 70th anniversary.

During these seven decades Riseholme has never wavered from its commitment to delivering first-class skills training, to enable our students to launch exciting career in sectors they are passionate about.

That has never been the case more than now. Riseholme has invested in new facilities and resources to ensure our students benefit from the very best learning environment.

We have become a new centre of excellence for high-level skills training in agriculture as part of the government's Institute of Technology (IoT) project and have developed a new residential complex on the Showground Campus.

Riseholme has also recently expanded its Animal Management Unit to include even more exotic species for students to work with, and has seen a complete refurbishment of it's agriculture and equine facilities. such facilities give us the platform to deliver an unrivalled range of hands-on , practical courses which give our students the skills and knowledge they need to succeed.

We make sure our students build on their strengths to fulfil their potential and we do it by providing outstanding tuition by experts in their field, stunning campus facilities and world-class industry partnerships.

For us though, a truly outstanding student experience is not just about academic success. Everyone at the college is committed to ensuring our students receive the best possible support and guidance to ensure they are happy and healthy.

Our students come first. When they join Riseholme they are joining a community, not just a college.
