Do students still study for academic qualifications (GCSE/A levels)?

Yes, Career Colleges provide the opportunity to combine the appropriate vocational, professional and general qualifications (GCSE/ A levels) as appropriate, in accordance with national requirements for 14 to 19 education. This includes Maths, English and Science being compulsory for 14 to 16 year olds. The critical ambition and requirement of a Career College is to provide young people with a well-rounded education, ensuring strong communication skills, a grounding in maths and English and preparation for the world of work- both employment and self-employment.
