Each year, approximately 30% of Year 11 decide to go to a college of Further Education, normally to study a vocational course.
If this is something that you are considering, it is recommended that you go to a college open evening to find out what they have on offer. Some colleges may also offer taster sessions, which usually occur during the school holidays. You will be able to find further details about such college events on their websites, which are linked to below.
Further Education applications are normally made on line, and it is best to apply early, so by January.
