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.
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.
