Vocational Skills Courses
Vocational skills courses are an excellent alternative to A-levels and are designed to train you for a specific job or for further study, including university.
Our diverse range of courses from Entry Level to Level 3 give you the knowledge and experience to get a job in your choice of career, many of which include work placements with top companies.
If you are aged 16 to 18 these courses are free as your tuition fees are covered by the Government.
We have 30 years’ experience in apprenticeships and currently work with around 450 employers to train more than 1,500 apprentices.
The best thing about an apprenticeship is that you get to earn while you learn, usually spending four days a week at work and one day at college.
You’ll pay no tuition fees, with your employer covering the cost through schemes like the Apprenticeship Levy, unlike university where you’ll pay up to £9,000 a year.
Alternatively, you could choose to stay at CONEL and study for a Higher National Certificate (HNC) or Higher National Diploma (HND) at Levels 4 and 5. We also offer a Foundation or Honours Degree in Counselling and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).
