Finishing school soon and unsure what to do next? Dudley College has all your options covered, so whether you’re thinking about full-time courses, A-levels, T Levels, Apprenticeships or university-level training, the college has a course for you!
Full-time courses provide training and qualiﬁcations related to speciﬁc jobs and sectors, and just like A-levels, you can progress directly to university or start your career.
Most universities accept vocational qualiﬁcations and students have an added advantage of at least two years’ experience studying a speciﬁc subject giving them a head start on the competition both at university and in employment.
T Levels are equivalent to three A-levels and focus on skills to support you into skilled employment, higher study or Apprenticeships. T Levels suit students who want to work towards a skilled occupation, prefer a practical approach to learning and want to get signiﬁcant work experience with an in-depth 45 days industry placement.
Dudley Sixth is a dedicated sixth form centre offering over 30 A-level subjects, including: Accounting (AAT), Biology, Business, Chemistry, Classical Civilisation, Computer Science, Criminology, Economics, English Language, English Literature, Environmental Science, Extended Project Qualiﬁcation, Film Studies, Fine Art, French, Geography, Geology, German, Graphic Communication, History, ICT, Law, Mathematics, Media Studies, Philosophy, Photography, Physics, Politics, Product Design, Psychology, Religious Studies, Sociology, Sport and Physical Education, Statistics and Textile Design.
Dudley Sixth students celebrated their A-level results last year with an amazing 100% pass rate in all subjects, so if you’re thinking that A-levels are your next move, why study anywhere else?!
Dudley College also offers a diverse range of Apprenticeships. Apprentices earna salary while working towards their career goal, developing skills and knowledge whilst in the workplace and studying for a level 2 or3 qualiﬁcation at the same time. Apprenticeships can also lead to degree level qualiﬁcations and can be a fast-track career option to move up the career ladder quickly.
University-level qualiﬁcations such as Higher National Certiﬁcates (HNC) and Diplomas (HND) can be studied at college and area more affordable option than studying at university.
You can progress from a level 3 qualiﬁcation to a HNC/D, and with the HND being equivalent to the ﬁrst two years at university, you can then top-up the HND at most universities for just one year to achieve a full degree.
Higher-levels subjects include animal management, computing, computer networking, construction, engineering, games design, sport, and teaching. The college also has links with local universities and offers full degree programmes.
