Values and Vision
Nottingham College is able to offer a huge range of courses for younger school-leavers. This include the usual A-levels and BTECs, but also numerous foundation degrees. As well as this, Nottingham College is unusual in offering higher education degrees, in which students can acquire university-level qualifications whilst taking advantage of the lower tuition fees on offer at the college. Nottingham College also has options for part-time study, in order to facilitate older learners looking to work jobs whilst attending the college.
“Learners benefit from good physical resources to support their learning effectively. They develop new skills well on vocational programmes in realistic work environments such as the training restaurant or hair salon, in which activities closely match many of the features and demands of the workplace.”
