Advice & Guidance
We can offer you a range of courses leading to jobs, further training or higher education, as well as Apprenticeships where you get paid as you learn. If you are unsure about what you would like to study get in touch for some advice about what is right for you. Contact Student Services on 0800 306 306 for more information or use this contact form.
We have a range of part time courses to help you progress to further study or training and to help you into jobs and careers. If you are under 19 years old on the 31st August before your course starts, you are entitled to free study. If you are 16 to 19 years old at school, you can only do courses for free if they are outside school hours. Contact Student Services on 0800 306 306 for more information or use this contact form.
You will have to pay fees for full time and part time courses unless you are in receipt of a means tested benefit. We may be able to help with the cost of childcare, travel to college and any specialist equipment required, for student in receipt of benefits. We also run a bus service from rural areas.

We have lots of resources to help you progress onto further education or employment, including Higher Education prospectuses, a weekly jobs newsletter, and an Advice and Guidance Officer to help point you in the right direction. We also offer advice with gap years and volunteering opportunities to help you gain important experience.
