Qualifications and skills

We offer a range of courses offering different qualifications and study levels:

New skills and qualifications can help boost your chances of success in a rapidly changing job market.

Many courses are free or have fee reductions depending on your personal circumstances.

Choosing a course can be difficult. But we can give you support and guidance to help you make the right decision.

Most courses are split into 'levels' (for example level 2, level 3). We offer courses up to level 3 and can help signpost other providers if you would like to take your learning further. The level best for you will depend on any existing qualifications and experience.

Join a making choices session to find out what qualification level you might be able to learn at.

If you aren't sure where to start or need help with preparing a CV, doing applications or interviews, we can help, whatever your age and ambitions. We offer free online short careers workshops run by our careers service coaches.

Learning for 14 to 19-year-olds

We offer a range of programmes tailored for learners aged 14 to 19.

We can help you to build your confidence and gain real skills for work or to help you with further study.
