Despite the end of the school term fast approaching, there is still time to apply to study at Croydon College, Coulsdon Sixth Form College and Croydon University Centre.
Staff are looking forward to welcoming new students back to a new future in September, helping people get on their way to starting their chosen careers.
At Croydon College, where you can study a wide range of vocational courses as well as Apprenticeships, Public Services courses are proving popular and Sports courses – Levels 1 & 2, Gym Instructing Level 2 and Sports and Exercise Science – offer something for those looking to start a career in improving lifestyles, while there are also ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) courses for those aged 16-18.
There are new courses at Coulsdon Sixth Form College too including an A Level in Accountancy, the only course of its kind in the local area – allowing students to develop quantitative data analysis and interpretation skills and an emphasis on management accounting giving them the confidence to communicate information to non-accountants and future clients.
And for those looking to step into Higher Education, there is still time to apply to study at Croydon University Centre. For those interested in entering a career as an education professional in an early years setting, the Early Childhood Studies degree will give those studying the skills and qualifications needed to get into it, and for those looking to shape the future of older children there is a Level 5 Diploma in Teaching & Education. The University Centre is also a provider of Higher National Certificates (HNCs) and new for 2021 is the Engineering course, providing participants with a thorough grounding in engineering principles.
To help people choose the right course for them, the Croydon College group is running Virtual Weekly Advice Clinics to answer questions in one-to-one meetings from Wednesday 21 July. The Advice Clinics are for all potential students and parents or carers considering applying for September 2021 across the Further Education, Higher Education and Apprenticeship courses.
