Your course options

It’s a competitive job market out there, so we aim to make sure you have everything you need to pursue your dream career or go on to university study. We offer two main pathways for school leavers: full-time Study Programmes and Apprenticeships. You can talk to us in person about both at our Open Events throughout the year. You can also download our school leaver guides here or by clicking the banner at the top of the page.

Full-time courses

Not only will you study a nationally-recognised qualification, you will also get involved in a number of activities to enhance your college experience.


Classroom learning isn’t for everyone, Apprenticeships are a great way to get a job in the industry you want to work in and earn some money whilst working towards a nationally-recognised qualification.

As a student, you could be eligible for financial support to help with the costs of exams, equipment, and materials, lunch, uniforms and travel. Go to our financial help page and see what’s available to help you.  Please click here for finance guidance.
