The Vocational Education Difference

Oldham College’s vocational offer means that you follow a personalised learning programme focused on securing your career of choice.

A vocational education is a real alternative to the A Level – university route. It enables you to achieve your career aspirations by progression to Higher Education at University Campus Oldham or other institutions, into work or a paid apprenticeship.

The college’s learning programmes develop your:

  • technical and professional skills
  • business skills
  • Maths and English
  • and provide work placements and mentoring.
Trained teachers, who are also industry experienced, deliver a curriculum developed in partnership with business, meaning you are ready for careers in growing areas of the economy in Oldham, Greater Manchester and further afield.
