South Eastern Regional College, as a​n FE College, is a primary delivery arm for government to ensure that the NI workforce has the skills to build a successful economy.

We have our origins in the rich history of technical education, introduced in the early 20th century. The technical schools of this time were designed to respond to the needs of the local community. Courses were vocational or technical incl​​uding science, art and technology.

Over the last 3 years alone SERC has progressed 14,125 people ​within the local workforce to a level 2 qualification and 9,423 to level 3 to 7, both representing 16% of the total working population in the South Eastern region. We offer a wide range of courses from Full-Time and Part-Time study to courses for businesses.

We have modern, well-equipped campuses in 7 locations across the South Eastern region.
