Looking for College Courses

College is very different to school. In many ways it is more like a university environment; you are expected to work hard but are given more freedom and independence. Some pupils flourish under these circumstances but others less so. It is important that you consider the type of learner that you are and therefore the type of institution that will suit you the best. College also offers a far wider range of qualification types such as vocational courses, A-levels and apprenticeships. Consider how you learn best, for example, is it by completing coursework or revising for exams? Below you will find links for a range of local colleges.
