We offer qualifications from Entry Level to Level 7, and our courses have details of their entry requirements listed on them. If you haven’t any previous experience of a technical area (for example, motor vehicle, hairdressing etc.), you may need to start on a Level 1 or 2 course to gain the essential practical skills first.
Courses are normally suitable for people who want to build up their personal and study skills and are a good stepping stone to a Level 1 course.
Courses are generally suitable for people who have gained 2 GCSEs at Grade 1 and above or who want to study a practical or skills-based course.
Courses are normally suitable for people who have gained 4 GCSEs at Grade 3 and above or who want to study a practical/skills based course. A Level 2 course is equivalent to 5 GSCEs at Grade 4 and above.
Courses are generally suitable for people who have either completed a Level 2 practical/skills-based course and want to progress or have gained 5 GCSEs at Grade 4 and above and want a course with some academic learning, e.g. A-Levels or a Professional & Technical course that is equivalent to 3 A-Levels.
Levels 4, 5, 6 & 7
Courses are degree-level and postgraduate courses. Students will need to have completed a Level 3 qualification to progress on to the level 4 courses.
