Study With Us

Courses Available

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.

Come to one of our In Person Open Events

If you do not wish to join a Live Q&A session today, then please join us at our next in person Open Event where you can meet the tutors and tour the facilities.
