Enrolling at College 2023/24

Find my course

Unsure what course to study?

You just need to answer three simple questions about your study preferences, interests and predicted grades and we can suggest courses that might suit you.

  • 1 Study type
  • 2 Your Interests
  • 3 Your Grades
Question 1

How would you prefer to study?

Question 2

What are your interests?

Question 3

What grades have you achieved or are predicted?

These results are a suggestion of courses you may want to explore but are by no means a definitive list and individual entry requirements do apply.

Provider Access Legislation

Updat­ed: August 2023

High qual­i­ty careers edu­ca­tion and guid­ance in col­lege is crit­i­cal to young people’s futures. It helps to pre­pare them for the work­place by pro­vid­ing a clear under­stand­ing of the world of work includ­ing the routes to jobs and careers that they might find engag­ing and reward­ing. It sup­ports them to acquire the self-devel­op­ment and career man­age­ment skills they need to achieve pos­i­tive employ­ment des­ti­na­tions. This helps stu­dents to choose their path­ways, improve their life oppor­tu­ni­ties and con­tribute to a pro­duc­tive and suc­cess­ful economy.

It is increas­ing­ly impor­tant that young peo­ple have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn about all options avail­able to them post-16 and post-18 includ­ing wider tech­ni­cal edu­ca­tion options such as T‑Levels and High­er Tech­ni­cal Qualifications.

IEG is com­mit­ted to ensur­ing there is an oppor­tu­ni­ty for a range of edu­ca­tion and train­ing providers to access stu­dents, for the pur­pose of inform­ing them about approved edu­ca­tion­al qual­i­fi­ca­tions. IEG is com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing stu­dents on the path that will secure their best future out­come, act­ing impar­tial­ly, in line with the statu­to­ry duty, and not show­ing bias towards any route, be that aca­d­e­m­ic or technical. 

IEG endeav­ours to ensure that all stu­dents have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to access infor­ma­tion on high­er qual­i­fi­ca­tions, tech­ni­cal options and appren­tice­ships (The Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion, July 2021: Bak­er Clause”: sup­port­ing stu­dents to under­stand the full range of edu­ca­tion and train­ing options, and the Provider Access Leg­is­la­tion, Jan­u­ary 2023).


The IEG pol­i­cy for Access to oth­er edu­ca­tion and train­ing providers has the fol­low­ing aims: 

  • To pro­vide oppor­tu­ni­ties that allow our stu­dents to devel­op their knowl­edge and aware­ness of all career path­ways avail­able to them, includ­ing high­er qual­i­fi­ca­tions, tech­ni­cal qual­i­fi­ca­tions and apprenticeships. 
  • To sup­port young peo­ple to be able to learn more about oppor­tu­ni­ties for edu­ca­tion and train­ing out­side of school before mak­ing cru­cial choic­es about their future options. 

Work Expe­ri­ence

There are lots of ben­e­fits to work expe­ri­ence, you’ll be work­ing along­side peo­ple who have been in the job for years who can pass knowl­edge on to you. Work expe­ri­ence builds self-esteem, and you’ll get to put into prac­tice all of the new skills you’ve been learn­ing at College.

  • You will expe­ri­ence a behind the scenes look into your career choices
  • You will devel­op the rel­e­vant occu­pa­tion­al skills, atti­tude and behav­iours expect­ed at work
  • You will be able to make a mean­ing­ful deci­sion about your future and progression
  • You get the chance to devel­op your employ­a­bil­i­ty skills, which could give you the edge when it comes to apply­ing for jobs
  • If you impress your employ­er you may get the oppor­tu­ni­ty for a part-time job, or full time job or appren­tice­ship once you have com­plet­ed your course
  • Work expe­ri­ence improves per­son­al development
  • If your pro­gres­sion route is onto Uni­ver­si­ty then you will have rel­e­vant and recent work expe­ri­ence to talk about in your per­son­al state­ment / interviews
