Craven College started life in the early 1800s as the Skipton Mechanics Institute on the High Street, Skipton, England. During the Second World War the Skipton Art School and the Skipton Technical Institute were established along with two Evening Institutes and in 1954 the Skipton Art School and Technical Institution became the Craven Institute for further education.
In 1974 the college was renamed The Craven College of Adult Education and full time courses flourished mainly in courses leading to secretarial work, hotel and catering, social work and management of small institutions.
