Casey

Studying: Engineering

I am now: Looking to start a career in the RAF

“I came to an open event before I applied for college and loved it. I wanted to come here straight away because it’s so open and relaxed. I really enjoy the technical part of the course, as we get to use a lot of machinery, and learn skills like welding, which is great as i prefer practical work to theory.”

Calvin

Studying: Photography

I am now: Starting a Photography Degree at University Centre Farnborough

“It doesn’t feel like school here, we can work independently. It feels more like a workplace with other people working on other projects around. I studied A Levels originally but found that they were more focused on revision and of course the stress of exams at the end.”

T Levels at Farnborough

We are excited to be launching T Levels – a new type of qualification from September 2020. T Levels are new two-year, technical programmes designed with employers to give young people the skills that industry needs.
