Vocational Qualifications

These are more practical, career-focused courses; lots of the teaching is through project work and most include a work placement.

There are a wide range of vocational courses; these include BTECs, First Diplomas, National Qualifications and National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs).

The vocational qualifications option will appeal to students who:

- Are interested in progressing to university or higher-level studies

- Want to gain qualifications that are nationally recognised

- Have an interest in a particular vocational sector

- Are keen to learn new things with a more practical approach

- Are inquisitive, persistent, flexible and able to transfer their knowledge and skills from one situation to another

- Are keen to develop their research and report writing skills.


Get on-the-job training and earn whilst you learn with an apprenticeship.

Apprenticeships are a great way to get into the workplace and learn on the job; you will complete a qualification alongside your employment.

They are available in a wide range of industries, such as Dental Nursing, Beauty Therapy, Accountancy and Retail, in addition to the traditional trade-based sectors of Construction and Engineering.

We offer a wide range of apprenticeships that offer high-quality training as well as on-the-job experience.
