We have courses ranging from Animal Care, Computing and Digital, Education, Childcare, and even Esports! meaning there is something for everyone. Whatever your passion; we are sure we have a course to suit you.
Our Level 3 courses are equivalent to A-Levels and are worth UCAS points, which means you can progress onto a range of degree courses after completion. They are more focused on project work, assessed over the course of the academic year.
Alternatively, maybe you want to choose the Apprenticeship route. Earn while you learn, working alongside experienced staff to gain industry-specific skills. Apprenticeships are available to people of any age, from school leavers looking to take their first steps towards their future career to people who may be looking to retrain, upskill and gain new qualifications.
Our courses not only allow you to reach your potential by continuing into Higher Education or higher-level qualifications but will open the door to a range of employment opportunities.
As part of your apprenticeship, you will have the opportunity for industry placements, attend guest lectures from experts in your chosen sector and the chance to work on live projects to ensure you leave us fully prepared for the job you want.
Don’t set limits on your limitless potential.
