Go further with The Sheffield College

There's no question that leaving school and starting at college is a big change, and whilst it can be scary it's also a brilliant opportunity for you to gain some independence and take your education into your own hands.

Don't worry if you feel a bit overhwelmed at the idea of taking such a big step, we're here to help you decide which path is right for you and to succeed once you're on it so that when it comes time to enter the world of work you feel as prepared as possible! 

Our goal is to see you go further in your studies and your career, and we've got the facilities and the teaching expertise to help you achieve your dreams.

Choosing a course is hard - where do I start?

It's true, we have loads of study programmes for you to choose from in subjects you probably didn’t even know you could do a course in! We know that one type of learning isn’t necessarily right for everyone, that’s why we offer full-time vocational courses (hands-on practical learning), A Levels (classroom based), and Apprenticeships (earn whilst you learn) to meet everyone’s needs across a range of levels.

You can use our Career Coach tool to help decide which route will suit you best, and find out what course might need to study for your dream job. Or if you have an idea of the area you'd like to study, you can check out more information about the department and all of the courses we offer in that area by clicking here.

Don’t worry about your English and Maths grades either - if you didn't get what your needed first time round we can help you study for them alongside your course so you don't miss out on those key skills.

Sounds good, but what about the facilities at college?

The facilities here are second to none and include hair and beauty salons, training kitchens, a model airplane cabin, engineering workshops, 3G all-weather-pitches, recording studios, a fully equipped theatre, dance studios, sports gym…and that’s not even the half of it! All of our facilities aim to mirror the environment you'll be working in once you finish at college, so you can feel confident in your skills and abilities. 

Our tutors are pretty amazing too! The majority of our tutors have worked in the industry they're teaching about, so you can learn from people who actually know what it takes to make it in that area. They'll help you go further by organising trips to local businesses, getting in guest speakers, supporting you with your assignments and helping you find work experience. 

When can I apply?

The good news is we're still accepting applications for study programmes starting in September 2019 as of right now! If you haven't applied yet, don't worry, you've still got time.

All you need to do is find a course that interests you (you can search for courses using the search bar at the top of the page, or click here) and hit the "Apply now" button to fill in an application form. 

Once your GCSE results have been published (Thursday 22nd August in case you forgot!) we'll invite you in to enrol on your study programme and meet your tutors/fellow classmates. It's that simple!
