About Vocational Access

Our Vocational Access courses offer you the opportunity to develop your skills and confidence to progress onto a course in college and future work.
On all our courses, you will choose two vocational options that you will learn during your course. You can choose from Catering, Health and Social Care, Sport, Public Services, Media, Art, IT, Building Trades, Hair and Barbering, Beauty, Customer Service, Business, Plumbing and Electrical, Performing Arts, Mechanics and Music. We recommend you pick two options that you’d like to progress onto to study or work in.
You will get to participate in group projects or work placements. You also continue to develop your skills in English, Maths, and other areas that will help you with your next step.

Your future

Students on our Vocational Access courses have progressed onto courses across the College including IT, Construction, Hair and Beauty, Sport, Health & Care, Art & Design, Music, and more! Other students have secured a job straight after leaving college. Some learners choose to take GCSEs in English or Maths during their course to help them progress.
