Study Programmes for 16 to 19 Year Olds


Our courses for 16-19 year olds offer personalised study programmes in smaller classes within a nurturing environment. Study programmes combine academic or vocational qualifications with work experience, English and maths, to give you the opportunity to develop your career choices and to apply your skills in real working conditions.

What do we offer?

  • Small classes and a nurturing environment which may better suit you if you find large FE colleges intimidating and overwhelming.
  • Support in the classroom if you need help to access your learning.
  • A mentor to listen to your concerns and support you throughout your course.
