Choose the right route for you

Choose the right route for you after school

Take the time to explore and understand your options and find a route that suites you. Your interests, your passions, your style of learning and your goals.
Many of our subject areas are available as a full-time course or an apprenticeship. Use this quick guide and checklist to reflect on what would be best for you.

Vocational College Course

You would be attending college each week. You will gain real world experience and industry-ready work skills through work experience and, for some courses, you will undertake an Industry Placement for two days a week in term time.

Professional and technical full-time courses are practical and hands-on courses that prepare you with the skills and knowledge in your chosen subject area. The qualification and skills you gain can lead to university, an apprenticeship or a job.

Vocational college study is right for you if:


You enjoy practical, hands-on
learning and want to explore the
full range and options of a subject.

You are not quite ready for
work yet and love college life
and seeing your college friends
every day.
You love getting involved in special
projects, work experience and
competitions to help you learn.

Vocational College Course

I came to the UK from Nigeria in 2016 and from day
one the teachers have been so supportive and kind
at all times. If I made mistakes, especially with my
writing, they helped me out and had lots of patience.
CRC has given me confidence, I’ve been pushed
beyond my boundaries, I’ve got goals. I believe in
myself and know I can achieve.


I may move on to Level 3 or may go on to the Access
to Nursing course.

Apprenticeship

Apprenticeships combine work and study by mixing on-the-job training with an employer, classroom learning at college and self-study. You get started on your career straight away, earn a wage and gain qualifications and experience that will help you progress up the career ladder, move on to degree level apprenticeships or university.

Apprenticeships are right for you if:


You are ready to commit to a full-time job and start earning.
You've chosen an career area

You know which career area you want to get into and want to learn on the job.

You are happy to study
relatively independently.

Apprenticeships

I’ve learnt hands-on, useful work skills in so many areas. It is all hands on deck when there is an event, so I’ve learnt a lot from colleagues.

I feel I’ve experienced more than if I had just learnt in a classroom.

Experiencing the buzz of working in marketing rather than learning from a text book has inspired and motivated me.

Apprenticeships are a win-win because you experience work, earn money and get a qualification at the end of it.
