Neath Port Talbot College (Welsh: Coleg Castell Nedd Port Talbot) is a further education institution established as two campuses in Port Talbot and Neath in Wales, United Kingdom. The original Neath College opened in October 1931 as a mining institute, with only two classrooms. By 1949 it became Neath Technical College. Between the 1950s to the 1990s there was a Neath College and an Afan College; each college had their own administration and staff. Both colleges independently offered O levels, A levels, National Diplomas and other qualifications. When the boroughs of Neath and Port Talbot merged to form a unitary Authority in 1996, the two colleges decided to merge as one also. Instead of each campus being called Neath College and Afan College, it became Neath Campus and Afan Campus.
The college allows study of many courses including GCSE's, AS Level/A levels, AGCE's, AVCE's, Adult Lifelong Learning Services, GNVQs at both Foundation and Intermediate levels. Neath Port Talbot College also offers higher education courses or HND/Cs in various subjects related to their AVCE/AGCE courses, notably in Computing, Health & Social Care, Hospitality and Childcare.
Campus
Afan campus also houses the studios for the new student radio station Generation FM, providing students and staff with an entertainment and information service. Generation FM is ran by students studying at the college. The Neath campus is located on Dwr-y-Felin Road just to the northwest of Neath town centre, it offers a large range of AS/A level courses and vocational programmes. A day nusery for staff, students and the local community is available on site.
