Covid-19 Update

Given the Covid-19 pandemic, the College calendar has been changed for the first term of the 2020/21 academic year and has introduced a two-week October half term break. This break is from Monday 19 to Friday 30 October during which time the College is closed to Learners. The College office will be open from Monday 19 to Friday 23 October (telephone/email enquiries open) and closed from Monday 26 October to Friday 30 October (telephone/email enquiries closed until Monday 2 November). From 2 November we are increasing the areas in which a face mask or covering is required to be worn.

Our level 3 full-time 'extended diplomas' (2 year courses) carry up to 168 UCAS points, allowing learners to progress to University, should they wish to. Support with progression onto higher education from all level 3 courses and apprenticeships is available through our Careers Advisor.

Throughout your time at college you will be offered plenty of support in writing your University application, including personal statements, so please don’t be afraid to ask questions! 

Our students have found that their courses not only prepare them for the world of work, but also for the independent study environment at University. Stephanie Evans studied Level 3 Health and Social Care before she went to Bournemouth University to study Nursing. She said, “One particular thing which came in handy was learning how to write and reference essays properly!”.

Here’s just a few examples of the routes our previous students have taken:
