    Looking for that next step after A Levels? We can help!

    Whatever happens with your A Level results, or if you are halfway through and finding it is not quite the right fit, we’re here to help you with your next step. There are plenty of ways to gain a valuable qualification that employers want to see at Abingdon & Witney College – here are some of the things you can do:

    Our Level 3 vocational courses are actually the equivalent of A Levels, except they are much more practical and project-based, meaning less exam stress and more time getting hands-on in our awesome facilities. At colleges, you generally have a lot more subjects to choose from too, and with us you could do anything from hairdressing to animal care, or engineering, sport, music technology, health care and much more. Oh, and we’re also the best in England for Level 3 achievement rates for students!

    Maybe you feel like you are ready to start employment now, but you need help with getting more experience, an apprenticeship is an ideal route into a career. We’ve got fantastic links with employers, and were recently graded as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, the highest achievement you can receive. Want to see the latest apprenticeship vacancies in your area? Take a look.

    If higher education or professional qualifications are what you have in your sights but don’t quite have the qualifications, we offer a wide range of routes through Clearing into that too, in the areas of science, business, accounting, equine and loads more. Access to Higher Education courses are ideal for those who want to go into higher education but maybe haven’t studied for a while, or are looking to go into a different direction – you can find out more about those here.

    So get in contact with us today to find out more – call 01235 555 585 or email enquiries@abingdon-witney.ac.uk – or visit the College on one of our upcoming drop-in days. You can come and see more of the facilities, speak to tutors about the courses, or see a careers advisor if you’re unsure which direction to go in.
