You may be surprised at the various routes on offer to progress your skills towards higher education or employment.

a level courses

Our Advanced Level (A Level) courses are traditional academic-style qualifications that can lead to university, further study, training or employment. A Levels are typically studied over a two-year period, and enhancing your A Level studies through enrichment activities is a positive way to boost your portfolio of skills and knowledge. 

Our A Level courses cover everything from Accounting to Art. You might feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of options available. If this is the case, please contact a staff member for advice.

vocational courses

Where A Level courses are academically focused, vocational courses suit those who prefer to learn in a practical way. Vocational courses prepare you for the workplace in specific areas like the trades, nursing, engineering and medicine. 

You can achieve the equivalent standard to an A Level by studying a BTEC (level 3), a T Level or another type of vocational or 'applied' course. Vocational courses simply provide a different way of learning that supports a route into the workplace, but they can also work extremely well if you want to progress to university.
