Vocational skills and qualifications

We have courses that provide learners with the opportunity to develop their skills and achieve a qualification to prepare for further study or to move into a paid role.

These first steps courses allow learners to focus on the development of transferable and sector-related skills. As part of these courses, you will benefit from input from experts already working in these sectors. Additionally, we offer direct links to teams who can support with employment opportunities and in some cases guaranteed interviews.

  • Health and Social care - for those who would like to work in a caring role, this is an ideal course designed to equip you with the skills to enter this field. This course includes guaranteed interviews for all that complete
  • Beauty - this is the course for you if you are looking for a career in a beauty salon or self employed, taught in a salon by an industry expert. Autumn term starts only.
