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 participate in activities to help people in our local community and 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.

Whatever crossroads you find yourselves at in life, Northampton College can help guide you in the right direction.
