You need English and maths skills to get on in life. They will support your studies at the College, help with everyday tasks and pave the way to future career success.
If you don’t already have a grade C or above in GCSE English and Maths – or equivalent qualifications – you will continue studying these subjects as part of your course at Derby College.
We’ll support you all the way: working with you on the right programme of development throughout your time with us.
When you’ve completed your course, why not broaden your horizons further still at Derby College? Additional qualifications in subjects ranging from ICT to Retail, Public Services to Travel and Tourism are exciting choices. Or check out our courses in Enterprise if you would like to set up a venture of your own.
As a Customer Service apprentice, Natasha Thomas sailed into a new career with classic narrow boat company Avante.
Her placement with the Willington firm – which involved helping run the office, liaising with customers from around the world, inspecting the boats and even driving them occasionally under supervision – led directly to the offer of a full-time job.
Natasha’s success was supported by the NVQ in Customer Service she took at Derby College during her placement.
I knew I wanted to work in customer service but in a role that was a bit different. I love this job. No day is ever the same and there’s always so much variety. My College tutor was really encouraging and regularly came to see me at Avante to go through my course work.
