Step Up To College:

After GCSEs

Did you know that you don’t have to stay at school in September next year? You can make the move to college, training or employment instead.

It may seem like a huge decision for you, but if school and A levels aren’t for you,  then take a look at the benefits we can offer: stepping up to college enables you to build on your talents and skills in real commercial training facilities and works wonders for your confidence. 

The biggest difference between school and college is what is learnt and how it’s learnt. School focuses on academic learning, whereas college provides an opportunity to train to an industry model, allowing students to interact with the world in which they want to work. The skills achieved at college, are the skills that employers need, and they can also get you into university if you choose.
