The route to a successful career isn’t always university, and employers are increasingly placing equal importance on vocational qualifications as academic, because they have been designed to help students develop the specific work-related skills and knowledge they are looking for.

As a result of this, not forgetting the increasing university tuition fees, more and more students are now choosing to study closer to home and take advantage of the excellent facilities and wide range of course options available on their doorstep.

Gloucestershire College offers a variety of higher education options, which include vocational Higher National Certificates (HNCs), Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) and Foundation Degrees, as well as new higher apprenticeships and a range of in-demand professional courses from Levels 4 to 7, which include AAT and ACCA Accounting qualifications, and Certificates and Diplomas across sectors such as teaching and management.

Vice Principal Peter White said: “Hundreds of students choose to study a higher education programme at Gloucestershire College every year thanks to our variety of career-focused courses, close relationships with local employers and excellent success rates.

“We specialise in vocational-led higher education programmes in areas including IT, business, engineering, health and social care, and the creative industries. Our courses are designed with employers’ needs and our students’ future success in mind, and can lead directly to employment in industry or the third year of a university programme.”
