An Apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to earn while you learn and pick up recognised qualifications. We work with local employers and have many vacancies on our website.

I’ve been told College is an easy option, is that true?
No! Our Level 3 courses are equivalent to A Levels and you still need to get 5 GCSEs at grade A*- C to get on a Level 3 course.
Can I only get into University if I do A Levels?
No. Around 600 of our Level 3 students progress to University. You get your results by the end of July so you can secure your place at university before A Level students.
