To help you make your next step on a full-time course, apprenticeship or Traineeship, you should think about:
What you like doing as a hobby or interest
What you enjoy at school
The type of job you would like.
If you are not sure which course you want to do, you can contact Student Services, take a look at our School Leavers Guide for some ideas, or come to one of our Events and speak to our friendly tutors.
Full-time courses available from Entry to Level 3
On a course you will:
Please note: Level 3 BTEC courses earn UCAS points equivalent to A Levels and support entry to university. (You should check university websites for individual course entry requirements).
If you are ready to start earning and feel you are responsible and hard working, then an apprenticeship is ideal for you.
As an apprentice:
You are employed full-time and paid directly by your employer
You normally work 4 days a week in the job plus a day at College studying towards your qualification.
You can follow in the footsteps of over 90% of our apprentices who have moved in to full-time employment.
Your advanced apprenticeship is equivalent to 2-3 A Levels which can lead to, or be an alternative to, university.
Ideal if you are 16-24*, enthusiastic, but not quite ready or qualified for an apprenticeship or a job, you could start a Traineeship.
*Also available if you are aged 19 - 25 and subject to a Learning Difficulty Assessment (LDA) or an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) issued by your home local authority, you can also apply.
We know it’s not easy for you, especially if you have little or no work experience and few or no qualifications. Traineeships help bridge the gap between the skills that you have and those that employers need.
