It’s a big step moving from school to further education and here at Shrewsbury College we’ll ensure you receive plenty of support, with the School Liaison Team helping with the transition to make sure you get the most out of your college experience.
We also welcome applications for our full-time programmes from those who have left school, even if it was some time ago! This section will explain your options further.
We offer a wide range of full-time work related qualifications suitable for students of all abilities – whether you want to prepare for a job or go on to university. These courses can all be found right here on our website, or in our full-time prospectus.
Our enrichment programme offers hundreds of different activities to help you develop those essential skills employers and universities are looking for. Find out more.
Take A Levels alongside your BTEC qualification
Shrewsbury College’s new curriculum options allow some full-time students to combine A Levels with a Level 3 Diploma programme or to study an additional award in another subject alongside their main qualification.
Whatever programme you decide on, the College recognises the importance of developing your English and maths skills and gaining further qualifications in these subjects. One year GCSE re-sit courses and two year AS Level courses in English and maths are available to all of our full-time students.
We are constantly improving and developing our services to ensure that you receive the best education and training opportunities to achieve your personal and career goals. Our well qualified and industry experienced staff are here to help you succeed.
Not sure which course is right for you? Why not book onto one of our taster events and experience a typical lesson for yourself? Or you can arrange to come in for a tour of the College or attend an Advice Event.
You’ll have the opportunity to meet the tutors, ask questions and find out about the higher education or job opportunities the course can lead to. For more information, please see our Events pages.
