Blog: It’s Not Too Late to Study at Dearne Valley College

15 September 2021

It’s been a very strange 18 months for….well everyone really.

Whether it’s constant Zoom calls or missing out on social gatherings, finally we can all breathe a sigh of relief that the worst is hopefully behind us…

So where are you now? Perhaps you’ve chosen the course you want to study and you’re so sure that it’s right for you, that’s great! Or… maybe you’re having second thoughts, maybe you’re unsure if this is really the career path you want to go down. Here at Dearne Valley College, we are still offering limited places on a wide variety of practical courses taught by industry experts. It’s not too late to apply and start your journey to your dream career.

If you feel like you need some help deciding, that’s ok too. We’re here to help you get the qualifications YOU need, for the career YOU want! All of our courses are designed in conjunction with local employers who allow us to create our curriculum around what they are looking for once our students leave us – this means you not only leave us with qualifications to go far but you get a head start in the world of work due to the in-demand skills you have learnt during your time with us.

Studying something you enjoy and taking that first step to your future career can be one of the most rewarding and enjoyable things you can do in education. Whether you want an exciting career in the sports industry, want to learn a trade in construction, have a passion for working with animals, or want to let your inner gamer thrive on our brand new Esports courses – we are here to help you succeed.

We have a whole team dedicated to helping you by providing all the information and advice you need to reach the future you want. Our friendly Learner Recruitment Team can help you find the path that is right for you and ensure you’re hitting the ground running whether you’re coming from another College, Sixth Form or thought you’d left your application a little bit too late.


Don’t hesitate – There is still time to apply for a range of courses and apprenticeships to join us this year!
