City and Islington College, known as Candi, is a further education college in the London Borough of Islington, England, with five major sites. It is a member of the Collab Group of highly successful Further Education colleges in England, of which its principal, Sir Frank McLoughlin CBE, was the first Chair. In 2005 the College completed a £64 million building programme. This was the biggest investment in accommodation in the history of further education in the United Kingdom. The college introduced the International Baccalaureate at its Sixth Form College in September 2010.
The college was formed in 1993 through a merger of the City and East London College, North London College, Islington Adult Education Service and Islington Sixth Form College, which operated over 13 sites across Islington, Hackney and Tower Hamlets.
