It's Not Too Late!

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

10 September 2020

Lately, we’ve been getting used to a ‘new normal’.

For many of us, this means seeing fewer of our mates and for less time than we’d like, going out less and worrying more. It’s also meant cracking open that baking recipe book that’s been gathering dust, ringing our grandparents more and reassuring each other. Now, for loads of us up and down the country it means starting our next step in education. New places, new faces and new ideas to chase.

Maybe you’ve settled in, you’re loving every minute of your new course, or maybe it’s not quite ‘you’. Well, we’d like to share something with you. It’s not too late. It’s not too late to change your mind and the course you’re studying.

You can be the change you seek. If you’d like to change course, don’t just think about it – talk about it. We’re here to help you achieve your personal and professional ambitions – regardless of if it means studying the course you’re on now or changing it up to something completely different. We’re here to help you succeed.

Learning something you enjoy is one of the most fulfilling things you can do in education. Whether that means you’re on the pitch or in the gym, learning to provide care for others or getting your hands dirty in a construction workshop. It doesn’t matter. As long as you enjoy it.

It’s ok to change your mind and your course. Think about it. You can use your passion to perfect your skills, cultivate your craft and dare to dream big.

Admitting we’d like to change is sometimes daunting, but it can be massively rewarding. It can be your foundation for a better future and a chance to rewrite your tomorrow.


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