Dearne Valley College is a part of the RNN Group, a group of education and training organisations which also includes Rotherham College and North Notts College. Our campus is based in the heart of the Dearne Valley in Wath-upon-Dearne, Rotherham, and is also easily accessible from Barnsley and Doncaster.

At Dearne Valley College we provide full and part-time courses and Apprenticeships for school leavers and adults, as well as degrees and other higher-level and professional training.

You can study from entry level through to Level 3 (which is the equivalent level to A-Levels) before choosing to progress on to degrees and university-level courses with us. We specialise in a technical and career-focused training and education, and will provide you with high quality learning combining hands-on and practical skills, valuable work experience and the technical, underpinning knowledge.
