Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant
As a further education college based along the South Coast, we understand the needs of the community we support which incorporates veterans and serving Armed Forces Personnel. In addition, we promote recruitment to the uniformed services through a vocational centre of excellence which includes a combined cadet force (Royal Navy). Finally, we have signed the Armed forces covenant and are part of the employer recognition scheme holding the Gold Award. We strive to meet the needs of our wider community, employers and stake holders.
We understand the aims and acknowledge that those who serve or who have served in the Armed Forces, and their families should be treated fairly and with respect within the community in which they live and serve. As part of the further forces program, we recognise the professional skillsets of our service leavers and promote educational opportunities with the view to future employment. Further education and options to retrain are also available.
Greater Brighton Metropolitan College (G B MET) was created from the merger of City College Brighton and Northbrook College Sussex. It is the college for our City and our region and draws on 150 years of heritage, history and experience.
We offer a comprehensive range of qualifications for 16-19 year olds, university degrees, full and part time courses for adults, apprenticeships and professional qualifications. The MET operates across five campuses in Brighton, Shoreham, Worthing and we teach around 3,500 16-18 year-olds, 1,000 undergraduates, 7,500 adult learners and 800 apprentices.
More than 1,000 expert staff work with our students to equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to prepare them for the world of work - to encourage support and inspire them. The MET helps to build the self-belief, confidence and bravery our students need to meet and exceed their aspirations.
At the MET we believe it's our job to celebrate ambition, unlock potential and transform lives.
