Gaining new qualifications and workplace experience
At Coventry College we want the best for you and want to help you progress. Studying a one or two year programme may have helped you to develop new skills and knowledge but that’s only the starting point.
We can help you take those skills to the next level and make sure when you do leave us you have everything you need, including workplace experience and industry placements, to land your dream career.
Working with tutors you know
Building relationships with your tutor takes time but however long you’ve been with us, you’ll have already established that connection. Tutors know you personally, how to get the best out of you and how to give you support when you need it.
From your point of view, you can also trust them and feel comfortable when you need that help or additional support.
Staying on at college means you’ll be able to continue to work with and learn from tutors you’re familiar with who are passionate about helping you to succeed.
Smaller class sizes
Depending what you choose to do next, you may benefit from smaller class sizes and more one-to-one support particularly on our university-level programmes which aren’t taking place in mainstream universities.
Feeling part of a tight-knit group can be a key factor in helping you to progress and set your sights high.
