A Levels

Advanced level qualifications (known as A levels) are subject-based qualifications that can lead to university, further study, training, or work. They are a traditional academic option where you sit exams at the end of your course. We offer A Levels in 16 subject areas at our High Pavement Sixth Form – a dedicated sixth form campus in Nottingham’s City Centre.

Vocational & Practical

These are practical qualifications that relate to a specific job or career sector. Unlike more academic courses like A‑levels, they combine a mix of theory and practical learning, which is where our state-of-the-art facilities come in handy! We offer a huge range of different courses in over 30 subject areas, and qualifications ranging from entry level all the way to degree level.

T Levels New!

We’re pleased to offer over 10 T Levels. A T Level is a nationally recognised qualification that is worth the same number of UCAS points as 3 A levels and is accepted by universities. You will spend 80% of the course at college, gaining the skills employers need. The other 20% of the course will be spent undertaking a 45-day industry placement where you will put your skills into action and gain valuable experience.

Undertaking an apprenticeship means you study for a nationally recognised qualification, whilst receiving on-the-job training and getting paid at the same time.
