Founded in 1909 by George Cadbury Jr, grandson of Cadbury’s co-founder John, Fircroft College of Adult Education is based in his former family home, a beautiful Edwardian building set in six acres of gardens. It was originally created to provide educational opportunities for some of the most disadvantaged and excluded members of society. Over a hundred years on from the birth of Fircroft College, its mission of ‘social justice’ is more relevant than ever. The College runs a number of residential short courses throughout the year, many of which are aimed at students with no or few prior formal qualifications, helping them to improve their skills and confidence, achieve personal and career goals and to reach their true potential. There is also a full time Access to Higher Education programme for students who wish to go on to University. Fircroft has a wealth of expertise in working closely with voluntary sector organisations to fulfil their purpose and mission. The College runs a number of residential courses and programmes tailored toward this sector, and is also able to design and deliver customised training. Praised by Ofsted as an ‘inspirational learning environment’, the College now welcomes over 1,500 adult learners a year from all over the West Midlands and further afield.
