Work Experience

You will be required to undertake 2 weeks work experience during your time with us. This will contribute to your study programme and allow you to have firsthand experience of what it is like to work in the industry they are interested in pursuing a career in.  You will be responsible of obtaining your own work placement and you will be required to contact companies and go through the necessary application process. Therefore we ask that you start looking now and are ready to give details of to your tutor upon enrolment.

Placements need to be in a suitable location so that you are able to conveniently get there and as a rule of thumb a 20 mile radius of the college is advised, due to health and safety reasons.

Financial Help

One of the many ways in which we help our students to be successful is by making sure that we provide support for meeting the costs of studying for those who need it.

We offer Bursary Schemes that can help with the costs of travel to college, course materials, uniform and some trips. We also offer Free College Meals – if you received Free Meals at school it is likely that you will qualify for this scheme.
