School Partnership Courses

For those in fourth year not already signed up for our popular vocational courses - we want you to come along and have a taste of different subject areas from Engineering to Art and Design and from Childcare to Sport and Fitness. By the time you complete the SCOTS (School-College Opportunities to Succeed) programme, we are confident you will have a better idea of what career path you would like to take.

Fifth years will then have further options and our school-link courses will help you to learn more about the many different careers available to you and discover which one is right for you. These include the Higher National Certificates and our new improved range of Foundation Apprenticeships. You can look forward to lots of hands-on learning and get your first taste of life after school.

As you know, things are a bit different at the moment and during the college closure if you’re offered an interview for one of our courses this will be conducted via telephone or video call.

So what are you waiting for? Take your first step towards that dream job and stand out from the crowd.

Applications for session 2021/22 will go live early 2021.
