You may have noticed that we offer Intermediate and Advanced courses for most areas.
Intermediate courses are equivalent to Level 1/2 and are for those people who need a bit of extra focus and support in order to learn more about their specific interest, get familiar with tools and equipment and may need to resit GCSE English and/or maths.
Advanced courses are equivalent to Level 3 and are ideal for people who have a good grasp of their interest, but need to focus on developing their technical skill and concentrate on growing their skills and employability, learning how to turn their talent into a career.

Student Success Stories
Four MK College students from a single year group have been awarded professional contracts with MK Dons Football Club.
Dylan Asonganyi put his pen to paper twelve months ago and has now been joined by his classmates, Jay Bird, Charlie Pattison and Matthew Sorinola. All are eighteen years old and study at MK College for a BTEC in Sport as part of their work with the Dons Academy.
Course Team Leader at the College, Nathan Flynn, says, “It’s wonderful that the club puts its trust in us to help with the education of Academy players. We’re always very proud when they get the chance to turn professional and this is big moment in all of their lives.”
The quartet are following in the footsteps of Spurs and England star, Dele Ali, who trod a similar path from the College some years ago.
