News: Got your GCSE results? Here’s some study options

Sixth Form Alevels01 1
Sixth Form Alevels01 1

How­ev­er you did in your GCSEs there are a huge range of post-16 study options avail­able, and there are prob­a­bly many you’ve nev­er even con­sid­ered before. It’s not too late to change your mind, and there is still time to sub­mit an appli­ca­tion to join us at col­lege this September.

Whether you’ve exceed­ed your expec­ta­tions and want to change your course or study route entire­ly, or haven’t done as well as you’d hoped; you have lots of choic­es avail­able to you and there is still time to apply for a course.

Approach your options with an open mind and think about what you may want to do in the future. This doesn’t mean you have to have every­thing worked out, you may not even know what type of job you want to do in the future, and that’s okay!

I want to re-sit my GCSEs…

If you didn’t get the GCSE results that you’d hoped for we offer the oppor­tu­ni­ty to resit. Depen­dent on per­son­al cir­cum­stances, you may even be able to study for your resits along­side anoth­er course.

I’m considering university, further study or want to study more than one subject…

If you’re con­sid­er­ing uni­ver­si­ty, fur­ther study or would like to study more than one sub­ject with an aca­d­e­m­ic focus then A Lev­els could be for you. High Pave­ment Sixth Form is our ded­i­cat­ed A Lev­el Cen­tre and we offer A Lev­els in over 25 subjects.

High Pave­ment is a mature learn­ing envi­ron­ment in the city cen­tre. We’re locat­ed next door to Not­ting­ham Trent Uni­ver­si­ty and you’ll have access to all the help, advice and sup­port you need to suc­ceed, all in fan­tas­tic sur­round­ings with great facil­i­ties and like-mind­ed peo­ple, so you’ll have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to make lots of new friends.

I have a career path in mind…

Have a career path in mind? Our huge range of voca­tion­al cours­es could be for you! 

Depend­ing on your cur­rent qual­i­fi­ca­tions and GCSE results, you may start your course on a Lev­el 1, 2 or 3 (Lev­el 3 is equiv­a­lent to two or three A Lev­els.)

The range of choice is huge and with spe­cial­ist facil­i­ties, tutors who have worked in indus­try and cours­es aligned with careers, a voca­tion­al course at Not­ting­ham Col­lege means you’ll be per­fect­ly placed to take the next steps towards your future, what­ev­er you choose. Study­ing a voca­tion­al course doesn’t mean you have to enter the work­place straight away either, many of our lev­el 3 voca­tion­al stu­dents progress onto Uni­ver­si­ty or even High­er Apprenticeships.

I want to learn on the job…

Col­lege isn’t just about learn­ing in the class­room and an appren­tice­ship offers you the chance to learn on the job, com­plete indus­try recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tions and earn a salary too.

We work with hun­dreds of employ­ers and have trained thou­sands of appren­tices. Our ded­i­cat­ed busi­ness team help to match can­di­dates with vacan­cies and are here to help you with advice on appli­ca­tions, prepar­ing for inter­views and find­ing your per­fect apprenticeship.

Appren­tice­ships aren’t just avail­able in tra­di­tion­al’ sub­jects like con­struc­tion and hair­dress­ing, there are areas you may not have even known offer appren­tice­ships, like sports coach­ing, health­care, den­tal nurs­ing, teach­ing and much more!

We adver­tise vacan­cies all year round, so if you can’t find a vacan­cy that inter­ests you at the moment, check our vacan­cies list­ings reg­u­lar­ly or get in touch with our team.

It's not too late to join us this September.

Apply­ing is easy — browse our cours­es and vis­it our apply page, sub­mit your appli­ca­tion and we’ll be in touch soon!

We know lots of choice can be over­whelm­ing so if you’re not sure what you want to study then don’t wor­ry. Our team of expert advi­sors and careers sup­port are on hand to help you nav­i­gate your options and give you indi­vid­u­alised advice. 

You can find out more about the cours­es we offer and entry require­ments on our course pages If you still have ques­tions get in touch, we’re here to help.
