Vocational courses

If you are passionate about one subject and know which career you want to pursue, an Activate Learning vocational course might be for you.

We are proud to offer a range of work-based qualifications across many industries at Levels 1, 2 and 3, with each curriculum designed by businesses to help you get into work

Study with us and you will gain real-life experience in facilities that have been specially designed to replicate real work environments.  You’ll apply what you learn in our hair and beauty salons and restaurants, or in real-world environments through work experience placements.

Our aim is to support you every step of the way, until you’re ready for progression to work or university-level learning.

We have worked with employers to organise our vocational subjects into clusters and career pathways. These are combinations of subjects and courses that we know will help accelerate your entry to the career of your choice, or further education.


Why Activate Learning?

Our extended Level 3 Diplomas give you the chance to specialise in your chosen area and are equivalent to three A Levels, giving you the UCAS points you need for university.

The curriculum of each vocational course has been designed in partnership with business, to maximise relevance of the course, whether you’re looking to go into further study or head straight to work. Many of these employers stop by to share tips, insights and potential work experience opportunities with our students.

Our career pathways approach will help to accelerate your entry to the career of your choice, or further education.
