Future opportunities

It is very important to find out about all of your options after you have completed your course. Some careers will require specific qualifications and training for you to work in the sector, whereas other jobs and careers do not have a set training route.

You may decide to continue to the next level of your current subject at this college. The College offers both A Levels and a wide range of subjects at Level 3. You must have the correct qualifications to progress on to Level 3 courses - this is usually an A*-C at GCSE, or a Merit/Distinction in the Level 2 vocational course.

You may also choose to apply for an Advanced Apprenticeship (Level 3). Information about apprenticeships can be found at the National Apprenticeship website - you can search and apply for apprenticeships there. You then complete ONE application form, which you can use to apply for any Apprenticeship. The entry requirements vary a lot, depending on the employer, the college and the Apprenticeship. Notgoingtouni has information about Higher Apprenticeships as well as vacancies.
