Smiling Nescot Students

16-19 Full-Time Education

Our number one priority is getting you ready for your career. We work closely with employers to design our curriculum, and we plan assignments around what you’ll be doing in industry. We will expect you to work hard and push yourself, and we’ll be there to help you every step of the way. Whatever your goals are, we’re confident that we have a qualification that suits you, tools to help you get the experience you need and the support to help you excel.

Study Programmes

Each full-time student will have their own study programme designed. We’ll start with your full-time course, and we’ll talk to you about what you’ve already achieved and what we think will help you progress towards your future career. 

If you don’t already have a grade 4 (grade C) or above at GCSE English and maths then these subjects or Functional Skills will be added to your study programme. Your study programme may also include a work experience placement, an extended project, and workshops to help you search and apply for jobs.

Study programmes include at least 540 hours spread across the academic year. All parts of it are compulsory.

Differences between a full-time course and an apprenticeship

We are often asked by young people and parents about the differences between an Apprenticeship and a Full-time college course. This page highlights the key differences - and similarities.

T Levels

T Levels are a new qualification at Level 3, which will provide an alternative to A Levels and existing vocational courses. Nescot will be introducing T Levels in September 2023. Find out more about them here.

I still can’t believe that this is the college experience we get to have – that we can learn directly from all these different animals in this beautiful environment, rather than just sitting in a classroom reading from a textbook.
