Vocational Courses

All of our vocational courses offer multiple levels within the curriculum area. If you still wish to stay in the same area, there is no need to do anything other than submit your enrolment details

Step one: Using the link that was emailed to you over the summer and upload your results

Step two: Once you have submitted this, your enrolment appointment will take place. 

If this is a telephone appointment, the course tutor will telephone (usually within 2 hours of you uploading or your appointment time) to discuss your course options.

If you have a face-to-face appointment, you should attend College at the time of your appointment.

However, if you have now decided on a different course area, please telephone the Course Query Team on 0161 280 8300/8332 who will be able to arrange an appointment with the new curriculum team. Please note this may not be until after 29th August.
