Whether you’re look­ing to take your first steps towards an NHS Career, want to enter a car­ing pro­fes­sion or up-skill your exist­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tions, Not­ting­ham Col­lege can help you get there!

Our range of cours­es designed just for adults offer flex­i­ble study options that will kick­start your career in the car­ing pro­fes­sion. With fund­ing avail­able for the major­i­ty of our cours­es, you can even study for free (sub­ject to criteria). 

What can I study?

Whether you’re look­ing to kick-start your career in a car­ing pro­fes­sion or are already work­ing in the sec­tor and want to up-skill with a short course, we have lots of flex­i­ble study options — some of them are ful­ly funded!

  • Access to High­er Edu­ca­tion
    Our Access cours­es are designed for those aged 19+ who want to go to uni­ver­si­ty but don’t cur­rent­ly hold the right qual­i­fi­ca­tions. Our health relat­ed Access cours­es are ide­al if you are look­ing to go into pro­fes­sions which require a uni­ver­si­ty lev­el qual­i­fi­ca­tion, for exam­ple nurs­ing and midwifery.
  • Den­tal Tech­nol­o­gy
    Want­i­ng to work in den­tistry? Our Den­tal Tech­nol­o­gy course leads to a recog­nised Gen­er­al Den­tal Coun­cil approved qual­i­fi­ca­tion which will enable you to work as a den­tal tech­ni­cian. If you are inter­est­ed in study­ing this course and don’t cur­rent­ly hold a lev­el 3 qual­i­fi­ca­tion you can study for free!
  • Health and Social Care
    We offer lots of full and part-time cours­es in health and social care includ­ing a range of short online cours­es per­fect for CPD if you’re cur­rent­ly work­ing in the sector. 
  • Ear­ly Years
    Our Ear­ly Years cours­es are ide­al if you want to work with chil­dren in a child­care or edu­ca­tion set­ting. We also offer a range of short online cours­es which are ide­al for those cur­rent­ly work­ing in this sec­tor who are look­ing to up-skill.


If you’re an adult aged 19+ look­ing to get back into edu­ca­tion then fund­ing and finance options are avail­able to help you con­tin­ue your stud­ies. Depend­ing on cer­tain eli­gi­bil­i­ty your cho­sen course could be com­plete­ly free!

If you choose to study an Access course fund­ing is avail­able through an Advanced Learn­er Loan. If you progress onto a uni­ver­si­ty course on com­ple­tion of your Access Course you don’t repay your Access Course fees!

The gov­ern­men­t’s Nation­al Skills Fund pro­gramme also offers fund­ing to adult learn­ers aged 19+ study­ing a full-time course in a num­ber of sub­ject areas. 

You can find out more about fund­ing options on each indi­vid­ual course page.
