We offer a range of different courses to give you that all-important first step in the right direction. Read on, as we set out how studying courses such as Computing and Digital, Health and Social Care, and Tourism and Hospitality can set you up for a successful career.
Computing and Digital

You’d blow her mind.

These courses can set you up for careers in Cyber Security, Software Engineering, Web Developing or Digital Marketing; meaning you’ll develop crucial creative thinking skills that will set you apart from others.
Health and Social Care
It’s widely known, especially after the past couple of years, that the Care sector is one of the biggest and most important in the UK. With vast and varied job opportunities, you could find the perfect job for you through studying Health and Social Care with us.
This course is ideal for those who have a true passion for caring for others. By studying Health and Social Care, you could go on to become a Nurse, Social Worker, Support Worker, Midwife, Carer or Counsellor. The opportunities are endless, and jobs are in demand.
We possess state-of-the-art facilities where you will learn vital, life-saving skills. Our Clifton Ward is fitted with hospital beds, CPR training equipment, blood pressure testing and more.
So, join the movement, and play your part, by studying Health and Social Care with us, which will set you up splendidly for an esteemed career in the NHS. You’ll be taught by experienced professionals, and go out on placements in order to practise what you learn in lessons in real-life situations.
Tourism and Hospitality
This course is much more than what it says on the tin. Studying Tourism isn’t purely just residential trips (although, there are many to enjoy and aid with your studies), or learning how to be in a cabin crew, it’s throwing yourself into the exciting world of tour guiding, event management and hospitality.
In this course, you will study topics such as the UK economy, heritage, cultural industries, retail, and sustainable tourism. You’re getting to learn about four subjects, for the price of one. This means that this course will set you up perfectly for the world of work, providing you with valuable social skills, customer service skills, general business skills, and events management skills.
Developing these well-rounded skills with us can go on to landing you a future job in events management or hotel management – meaning you could one day be working on music festivals or in posh cruise ships, in the UK or abroad.
