If you know what industry you want to go into (for example, working in healthcare, the construction industry or media production) then a First or National Diploma could be better for your career progression than A-levels, combining practical learning with subject and theory content. Further education vocational courses provide a hands-on approach to learning.
Vocational courses also help you figure out what specific role you want to pursue in your chosen industry, unlike A-levels which are more academic, theoretical and examination based.
A National Diploma is equivalent to three A-levels and is accepted by many universities and employers. You need to determine your learning style and your aspirations when deciding which qualification is best for you.
All our courses will provide you with outstanding experiences of work and prepare you for your future career. You will work with real employers and customers and build connections.
