What is a Study Programme?

Our study programmes give you the chance to gain a Level 2 qualification, with a guaranteed interview for a Level 3 Apprenticeship at the end of the course; meaning you’ll start your career at a higher level. Plus, you’ll complete a relevant work placement with a local business while you study with us so you’ll have all the skills you need to succeed.

You’ll enjoy regular trips to local businesses where you’ll be able to network and get some great insights into different industries and how your role fits in to a real workplace; with previous day trips to Media City, O2 and more.

Each student will also go on an all-expenses paid study trip to Stuttgart*, which gives you an insight into how businesses work internationally and also provides a great talking point in interviews. At the end of your chosen programme you will be ready to move into the workplace with a guaranteed interview for an Apprenticeship in your field.

Why should you choose a Study Programme?

Our Study Programmes will give you knowledge of the working environment alongside qualifications, to ensure you’re an attractive candidate to employers.

Study programme students are highly employable, as they have the skills and experience they need to hit the ground running in the workplace while having the specific qualifications and work experience they need to succeed in their roles.

Not only will you have the qualifications and experience employers are looking for, your dedicated Career Coach will give you help with your CV, interview skills and preparation and guidance on applying for jobs.

You’ll also have access to free driving lessons to help get you on the road, a skill which can help increase the range of job opportunities available to you.
