Thinking about college?
Choosing a college can be a confusing and stressful decision. Luckily we are at hand to help! With the school leaving age being raised to 18 (read our blog about that here - The truth about when you can leave education), your choices include going to college.

Come be part of our exciting journey to success. With so many courses and campuses to choose from, there's something for everyone.
What is vocational study?
The word vocational may seem scary- but it's not! It just means it is a practical option which is more hands on then doing A Levels. You can still go onto university with a vocational course if that's what you want to do. There is a wide range of choices available after completing your course which includes university, apprenticeships and getting a job. A vocational course is a great option if you decide that A Levels are not for you.
