If you don’t quite know yet what it is you want to do, or you need a bit of extra help to get the qualifications you need to progress, our one-year full-time Foundation Programme provides the perfect starting point, enabling you to boost your skills, increase your confidence and move on to further levels of achievement.
As well as working on a range of work-related projects you will also study for those essential qualifications in English and maths that all employers demand.
When you’re ready, you’ll also be able to take part in activities to help people in our local community. You’ll also get the chance to take part in work experience that we will arrange with local employers, giving you an invaluable insight into the world of work. It’s a helping hand to get you back on track.
Whatever your skills or interests, you will find a programme here to suit you, and our friendly team will help you decide on exactly what’s best for you. If you’re not ready to start in September we also have options starting in November, January and March/April: look out for Foundation Engage and Foundation Fresh Start.
Even as adults we don’t always know what we want to do next. Sometimes we fancy a change, sometimes we need to brush up on the basics and sometimes we want to learn new skills to prepare us for a bright new future.
We offer a Level 1 Progression to Work and Further Studies qualification, ideal for adults without any formal qualifications, people who are looking to move onto Level 2 courses or who are hoping to secure employment. You will learn basic English and maths skills, get to grips with computing and have the opportunity to learn about writing a CV and the importance of interpersonal skills – vital in the modern workplace.
Meanwhile, our Level 2 Connect to Employment and Further Learning course will help you progress onto Level 3 qualifications, developing your skills in English, maths and IT and preparing you for long-term employment in your chosen career.
This course is ideal for you if you have been out of education and would like to develop the skills necessary to motivate you onto the next stage of your life.
Whatever crossroads you find yourselves at in life, Northampton College can help guide you in the right direction.
