Vocational Qualifications

UK colleges provide high-quality professional education for students wishing to gain respected qualifications relevant to the workplace. The main vocational qualification studied in Britain is the National Vocational Qualification (NVQ). These are based on professional specifications and available in such subjects as public health, social services, IT, tourism, construction, mechanical engineering and many more.

The diploma awarded at the end of your studies by respected UK awarding bodies is recognised by employers and universities. Securing this diploma enables you to enter your second academic year without taking exams. In addition, colleges can provide pre-university training and also offer the more academic A Level qualifications.

To enter UK colleges, students must be 16 years old and usually will need to have five GCSEs at grade C or above to study A levels.

The London Education Centre will provide you with comprehensive information about studying in UK colleges and advise you on the best places to study and courses to take. We will also support you in the process of securing a place in your chosen college and help you with all the necessary arrangements, free of charge.
