A Gazelle College 

BDC is one of only 20 Gazelle Colleges across the UK. It means that we recognise that the highest quality technical skills are not enough on their own, students need opportunities to develop their T-shaped skills too. Skills such as creativity, resilience, innovation, initiative, enterprise problem solving. 
Through studying at a Gazelle College, our students learn by doing and that means real work experience for clients through our Entrepreneurs' Academy. 
Our students get access to leading entrepreneurs, competitions and activities which help them develop the skills needed for the UK economy - whether that means creating their own job or becoming an entrepreneurial employee. 
The Gazelle Colleges group is transforming further education, developing new commercial learning models and innovative partnerships with business, to equip students with the skills to be creative, confident and resilient in the workplace.
