If your child is in year 11 they are no doubt thinking about what they want to do when they leave school. At Nottingham College we offer a variety of different pathways within Further Education.
As a parent you play a crucial role in helping your child navigate through the tough decisions they face when they finish their GCSEs. To equip you with relevant, up to date information to support your child we will be delivering two parent information events to help explain the wide range of choices available. Whether they’ve applied to study with us and have an offer of a place, or have yet to make up their mind, we can help.
You can choose to attend one or both events, each will be a one hour live virtual event and will focus on either A Levels or Vocational courses at Nottingham College.
Further Education (FE) includes any study directly after Year 11 in secondary school that is not part of a graduate or undergraduate degree (Higher Education).
You will study 3 or 4 different subjects over 2 years at our High Pavement Sixth Form.
Vocational College Courses
Hands on, practical course that teaches you the skills needed for a particular job or industry – you will only pick 1 course.
FE is very much a stepping stone and can lead you to either University (Higher Education) or into employment.
We have full-time Vocational courses in over 20 subject areas. These range from Entry Level to Level 3 which means we have something to suit everyone’s needs! In addition, we have great links with employers and boast specialist facilities and resources. These include labs, studios, workshops, garages, kitchens, and more to help you get the training you need.
Our dedicated sixth form centre is attached to one of the largest colleges in the UK, we offer much more than just qualifications. A college experience can be truly inspiring and life changing and we strive to make sure that all our students can reap the benefits that A Level study at High Pavement can offer.

All our live Q&A events are being broadcast through Microsoft Teams. Microsoft outlines the following system requirements for devices accessing a Microsoft Teams live event on their website for attendees. For attendees the system requirements are generally quite flexible and should only require a modern web browser in most cases.
If you are joining the live event on a mobile you may want to use the Microsoft Team app for a better experience, which is available for Apple (iOS) and Android from the appropriate app stores for those devices.
Joining the live event from a desktop should only require a modern web browser like Google Chrome.
You do not need to have an Office 365 subscription or license to access to Microsoft Teams live events from attendee perspective. Signing into a Microsoft account is also optional, but you can sign in with a Personal/School Microsoft account if you'd like.
