At West Notts, our courses range from entry-level to university-level. Deciding what to study can be based on future aspirations (be it university or employment), the level you’re studying at or course length.
A Levels are academic qualifications taken after GCSEs. Each A Level focuses on a specific subject area, students normally take two to five depending on career goals. At West Notts, we offer 16 different A Level subjects.

Work and study at the same time. You’ll learn practical skills at work and may also go to college on day release. You’ll also earn a weekly wage. Apprenticeships come in three levels (intermediate, advanced and higher), each designed to further develop your skills and knowledge in a specific area.
The college offers apprenticeships through our subsidiary company, Vision Apprentices, who will help you to find an apprenticeship to suit you, making sure you’re fully prepared for the role.
