The Royal National College for the Blind (RNC) works with people who are blind or partially sighted. Students are aged between 16 and 65 and we provide education and training to enable them to achieve their potential, engage fully in their community and succeed in their chosen career path.

The Royal National College for the Blind (RNC) works with people aged 16 to 65 who are blind or partially sighted. We provide education and training to enable them to achieve their potential and succeed in their chosen career path.

Although living with blindness means making adjustments, we do not believe it should mean compromising. The RNIB reported that two out of three working age adults with a visual impairment are unemployed. By contrast, two out of three RNC students successfully progress to higher education and employment.

We provide a wide range of academic and vocational studies, including ‘A’ levels and BTEC qualifications, in subjects as varied as business, languages, music, media, sport, ICT and Braille. Students receive guidance on employment, transition into higher education and interview skills, and also take part in work placements with businesses across the UK.

Our role doesn’t end with traditional studies. For students, learning to engage confidently in everyday life, from preparing meals and doing laundry, to catching a bus or using a cash machine, is as important as qualifications. Every person who comes to RNC is also taught the practical Independent Living Skills that provide the foundation on which to build their future.
