Reading College is a further education college based in Reading, Berkshire, England. It has over 8,500 local learners on over 900 courses.[1]

The Kings Road site that is the principal location of Reading College has been used for further education since 1955, when the Reading College of Technology was opened. The College of Technology later became the Reading College and School of Arts and Design, until it was taken over and became part of Thames Valley University in 2004. Thames Valley University continued to offer further education courses at the site, whilst also offering higher education courses more in keeping with its status as a university.[1]

In 2009, the Thames Valley University decided to concentrate on higher education. In 2010 the responsibility for further education, along with the Kings Road site, were transferred to a relaunched Reading College. The college is a partnership between [1][2]

Reading College and Activate Learning are lead sponsors of UTC Reading, a university technical college which opened in September 2013.[3]
