Want to Swap from Yr12? College could be for you!

16th August 2018

If you are in Year 12 and are having second thoughts about sixth form, don’t worry as you can swap to North Kent College for Year 13. 

It doesn’t matter what you are studying now, we have many options for you to choose from and our vocational courses will give you the skills you need to gain employment.
You can swap to a Level 3 course which  is equivalent to A-Levels, which will allow you to progress onto university afterwards (our Level 3 courses can take 1 year and others may take 2 years to complete). 

What are vocational courses?

Vocational courses differ from A Levels as they give you the skills employers are looking for and need within their business. Vocational courses allow you to start work at 18 or gives you the option to progress onto university if you want to continue expanding your knowledge and skills.

At NKC we do not offer A Levels, so if you are happy and want to continue with A Levels, we strongly recommend you stay at school. However, if you want a different style of learning, to gain skills so you can move onto employment, then check out our vocational courses we offer here

We have hundreds of courses to choose from covering subjects from Arts, Business and Computing, Construction and Engineering and Sport, Hospitality and Service Industries. Once you have found a course you are interested in, make sure you check which campus that course is based on, as well as what our previous students have said about that course and their experience here at NKC. 

We also have other academic options for our students such as apprenticeships, industry placements, Higher Education courses and more. We want our students to get the most out of their education which is why we have invested in commercial standard facilities, so they can have a true experience of the equipment that they may be using in their future careers. Also, our tutors have worked in the industry that they specialise in, so you will learn from the very best and have industry connections. 

So if A Levels are not for you and you need a change of scene, why not get in touch? We are happy to help you, just call 01322 629400 for more information.
