We are also now offering Level 4 Foundation Degree programmes and apprenticeships in some vocations which may be an option following the Advanced programme.

There are a number of reasons for choosing an apprenticeship:

  • Earn as you learn.
  • Start your career in a practical trade or commercial job.
  • Achieve qualifications and skills with real relevance to your chosen industry, giving you the opportunity to progress to high-level jobs quickly.
