What are vocational Level 3 qualifications?
Vocational Level 3 qualifications are an alternative to A levels and apprenticeships, and offer another route to higher education. Courses last for two years and open up multiple progression routes on completion – be it university, employment or another course at a higher level. Studying a vocational course lets you:
- Combine work experience with academic study
- Receive focused learning on your area of interest
- Study in specialist facilities that develop technical skills for higher study or work
- Access industry partnerships that foster professional connections
What are apprenticeships?
Apprenticeships combine studying with paid work. They allow students to specialise in a particular field and work towards a qualification through on-the-job experience.
Interested in an apprenticeship?
Harrogate College has a wide and varied apprenticeship offering, covering most industry sectors. Our apprenticeships start from GCSE to degree-level, enabling you to gain an education with on-the-job learning.
