What career opportunities can this lead to?

This programme provides preparation for study and training for work and/or academic study in the UK for non-native speakers of English aged 16-18.

After completing Level 1 Skills for Living in the UK, previous students have continued at the College to study a wide range of subjects including Plumbing, Childcare, Electrical Engineering, Hair and Beauty, Travel and Tourism, Event Management, Computer Science, Business Administration and Motor Vehicle.

Some learners have continued at the College and taken the Access programme before being accepted at university. Other students have progressed to university after completing Level 3 programmes.

If you meet the age eligibility criteria, you can continue on a second year of the Skills for Living in the UK programme to gain a full suite of Level 2 qualifications.

Other learners have gone straight into employment, having improved their English and gained some useful qualifications.
