Did you know that young people must now continue in education or training until their 18th birthday?
Education after 16 doesn't just mean staying at school; options also include coming to Newbury College for a full-time vocational, GCSE or apprenticeship programme, all of which offer an excellent progression route to university or employment.
Studying at college means you are treated as an adult, not a pupil. You get the opportunity to be yourself, know your tutors by their first name (no more Miss or Sir!), meet new friends and begin to develop your independence.
We also offer full-time programmes to 14-15 year olds - find out more here.
I really enjoyed meeting new people and being able to develop the skills I needed to be a paramedic. I especially liked taking part in the fun outdoor adventure activities.
Apprenticeships offer a robust approach to work-based learning by ensuring that learners acquire practical skills, experience and knowledge to meet organisational needs now and in the future, through offering both on and off the job learning which leads to a nationally recognised qualification.
A traineeship is a course with work experience that gets you ready for work or an apprenticeship.
