Our career-based curriculum is led by employers and designed to give you the best opportunities to gain the qualifications and skills you need for the career you want. We are preparing students for the workplace of tomorrow, creating a fully-immersive learning environment that blends hands-on, technical learning with underpinning knowledge and professional work related activity.

Career-focused education programmes are great for school leavers who want a more hands-on approach, especially if they know what industry they want to move into. If you want to work in health care, logistics, engineering or digital technology, for example, then a BTEC or T-Level could be better for your career progression than A-Levels, combining practical learning with subject and theory content.

We involve our business partners in many aspects of our curriculum planning and delivery to ensure these programmes meet the needs of employers and job sectors. This means that students develop the skills and knowledge that employers want – increasing their employability and likelihood of finding a job after completing their studies.
