With over 80 Vocational courses on offer we have something to suit all interests and levels of ability. If you enjoy a more practical hands-on approach to studying which is primarily coursework focussed, a vocational programme could be the perfect fit for you.
Vocational courses relate to a particular career sector or area, and are especially good if you enjoy a more practical hands-on approach to studying, and prefer assignments and controlled assessments to exams. However they are far from an easy option! They will provide you with the skills and qualifications to enter the world of work, or to progress to higher education.
Vocational students also have the opportunity to access a wide range of activities to enrich their experience, such as studying English and maths, developing employability skills or joining one of our Development Centres in Sports or Music.
