14-16 Year Olds

Can’t wait to get your hands on something more practical?

Perhaps you feel you’re ready to move on? Possibly the thrill of double German on Tuesdays has worn off?

If you’re one of the lucky ones and actually know what you want to do, we may be able to help get you started on a practical career-led course.

With the support of your school, it is possible to study at West Suffolk College one or two days a week, leading directly to further study at 16.

We offer the following Level 1 and 2 part time courses for anyone aged over 14:

  • Beauty therapy
  • Business
  • Construction
  • Engineering
  • Hairdressing
  • Health and social care
  • Motor vehicle
  • Sport

If you are interested in taking an early vocational qualification, speak first to your school’s head of year.

Taster days

Why not try the college experience for a day, and find out more about the subjects you’re interested in.

Free for students in years 10 or 11, you’ll get a taste for the place as well as the course you’d like to study, what and how you’ll learn, and where the course might take you.

Home educated

We’re always happy to support your ‘off-grid’ lifestyle – we’re not exactly the most conventional place after all. In addition to vocational courses for under 16s, we offer GCSE maths and English. We’re also open to tailoring provision based on your progress and the support you need.
