Coventry College has launched a variety of inspiring programmes which start at the City Campus from September.

The College will deliver new full-time programmes for school leavers, part-time programmes for adults and a new apprenticeship programme to attract learners of all ages.

Programmes will put learners on track for exciting careers in a range of sectors and help those already in employment to develop new skills which support them in the workplace.

Full-time programmes include Level 3 Diplomas in Music Performance, Dance & Musical Theatre and Enterprise & Entrepreneurship.

Gaming enthusiasts will also be able to develop their skills for careers in the esports industry through the first-ever National Diploma and Extended Diploma college Esports programmes.

Meanwhile, adult learners can learn new skills or improve their career opportunities by signing up for new, flexible part-time programmes.

They include Business Skills, Understanding the Principles of Dementia Care, Understanding Mental Health and an Access Accounting Software programme.

Some of these part-time programmes may be FREE for adults eligible for the Government’s National Skills Fund which aims to help adults train and gain the valuable skills they need to improve their job prospects and support the economy.

From April, any adult over 24 and who wants to achieve their first full Level 3 qualification, equivalent to an advanced technical certificate or diploma or two full A-Levels, will be able to access hundreds of fully-funded programmes.

As the College continues to expand its range of apprenticeships, a new Cyber-Security Technician apprenticeship is also now available which will support businesses, helping them to mitigate risk and protect them against cybercime attacks.

Gemma Knott, Vice Principal for Business Growth, Engagement & Partnerships at Coventry College, believes the programmes further enhance the College’s provision.

Gemma said: “We’re delighted to launch these programmes for the first time at Coventry College and believe they will be beneficial to learners across all age groups.

“We’re constantly adapting to change and feel these new programmes reflect skills which are required in ever changing sectors and add to the wide range of programmes we already offer here.”

In addition, the College has also launched a series of Higher Education programmes which get underway from September which include Business, Film Production, Games Production, Computing, Photography and Performing Arts.

Gemma added: “We are excited to deliver all these new programmes and look forward to welcoming learners to our City Campus from September.”
