VOCATIONAL COURSES

These courses are designed to prepare you for employment, a higher level course or university. They’re more practical than A-Levels and you’ll be studying in a working environment and assessed through assignments rather than exams. You’ll also have the opportunity to undertake a work placement.

APPRENTICESHIPS

For the chance to earn while you learn, apprenticeships are hard to beat. Your time will be divided between the workplace and the classsroom, developing invaluable skills, putting them into practice and possibly earning a wage as you go. Students will need to have secured employment in order to apply.
