Study Programmes

All the signs are there to show that traditional qualifications are no longer the answer and we can’t ignore them any longer. As a result of this, all of the qualifications offered at Preston’s College have been reworked with your employability in mind. Whatever pathway you choose you will have the opportunity to undertake work experience and you will learn the workplace skills you need. ALL OF OUR COURSES ARE FOCUSED ON MAKING YOU THE MOST EMPLOYABLE.

Advanced, pre-advanced and professional qualifications

We offer a wide range of advanced level courses which allow you to progress to University or straight into the world of work.  These courses include technical qualifications such as BTEC Extended Diplomas and NVQs as well as professional qualifications in areas such as Accountancy, Digital, and Dance. We also offer a number of pre-advanced courses from Entry to Level 2 such as BTEC First Diplomas, NVQs, and GCSEs in English and maths.


Apprenticeships allow you to gain work experience within industry while studying nationally recognised qualifications. You can earn while you learn which helps reduce the cost of studying.  Find out more about our Apprenticeships.
