Whatever your interests and aims, Derby College has a wide range of full-time and part-time courses and adult learning opportunities to suit your needs. We have everything from Distance Learning opportunities to Higher Education Diplomas and Degrees.

At Derby College we know that part-time students have demanding work and family commitments and we do everything we can to help you fit your studies into your lifestyle. Expert support and guidance is available to help you make the most of your time with us and our professional tutors are dedicated to your success.

The expansion of eligibility for the Free Courses for Jobs offer, means that adults without a Level 3 qualification will be able to gain a free level 3 qualification from a wide range of courses with good wage outcomes and the ability to meet key skills needs. Tens of thousands of adults across England have taken advantage of this important offer.

From 1 April 2022, any adult in England earning less than the National Living Wage annual rate (£18,525 in FY2022-23) or who is unemployed can access these free qualifications, even if they already have a Level 3 qualification or higher.

With the expansion of eligibility for these qualifications, the lowest-paid adults will have access to significant opportunities to upskill or retrain so that they can find better jobs, improve their wages, and increase their chances of finding employment. You can find further information on financial support and fees.

Derby College is offering you the opportunity to apply for courses starting right now. Apply online for your place, simply select the course of your choice below and complete the application form – we will do the rest.
