Different to school
Our campuses are bigger, our facilities are what you would find out in the industry and most of our tutors have worked in the field they teach, so you’ll learn from their real-life knowledge and experience.
As a young adult, we expect you to take responsibility of your studies seriously – but also have fun, through an enriching and exciting college life.
All 16 to 19 year old students are funded for an individual study programme. Most study programmes have a core aim. The core aim of a study programme is a substantial academic or vocational qualification.
The study programme is tailored to each student, has clear study and/or employment goals reflecting the student’s prior attainment, and include:
- substantial qualifications or work experience
- maths and English for students who have not achieved grade A*-C GCSE in these subjects
- high quality work experience or work preparation
- added value non-qualification activity that supports the students’ goals and is integrated into the study programme
