Young people who left school in the summer and still haven’t decided what to do next, job seekers looking to boost their employment prospects, employees wanting to get on the promotion ladder, and those looking to earn while they learn, have still got time to enrol at City of Wolverhampton College.  

The college offers full-time and part-time courses in a wide range of subjects from beginner to university level, as well as an apprenticeship scheme enabling people to combine working for an employer with studying for an industry-recognised qualification. 

With over 300 qualifications designed to teach the skills employers are looking for, impressive industry-standard training facilities, and staff dedicated to helping every student learn, achieve and succeed, studying at the college will set them on the road to a great career and enable them to do more in the future.

Also available are English and maths courses, A Levels in a range of subjects and Access to Higher Education diplomas for those who want to progress to university but lack the necessary grades to study at degree level.   

And for people who want to study for university-level qualifications without moving away from home, the college offers over 30 higher education programmes – including HNCs, HNDs and Foundation Degrees  at a far lower cost than following the traditional degree route.   

Courses for 16-18-year-olds are free, students will get the chance to improve their maths and English grades alongside their chosen qualification and, dependent on household income, may qualify for financial support including a travel pass and lunch card.  And for those aged 19 and over, financial support may be available to cover course fees and exam, travel and childcare costs.   

Certain courses for adults are eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan which will cover the cost of the course and doesn’t have to start being paid back until earnings reach over £25,725 per year. What’s more, for students who complete an Access to Higher Education qualification and go on to complete a degree or other higher education course, the loan for the Access course will be written off.   

For anyone needing advice on which route to take, the college’s award-winning careers guidance team can help – from identifying skills, discussing study options and planning next steps, they can provide all the information needed to enable each student to make the best decision for their chosen career.
