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 4 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 such as Design, Media, Engineering and Customer Service are exciting choices. Or check out our courses in Business, Enterprise and Management if you would like to set up a venture of your own.
Apprentice Sam Mount is helping Derby’s Cathedral Quarter Hotel to improve its social media presence. He is one of three apprentices recruited by the hotel across its operations in a new partnership with Derby College.
One of the city’s top boutique establishments, the hotel is a business focused on customer experience, and values its social media credibility highly. Sam’s work plays an important role in communicating and engaging with customers as well as building the hotel brand through creative platforms.
He attends Derby College on day release every two months as he works towards an NVQ award.
While the social side of university life appealed to me, I wasn’t convinced that I wanted to study for three years, especially when there was no guarantee of a job at the end of it.
I’d always been interested in both the software and hardware aspects of computer technology, so when I saw the social media opportunity on the national apprenticeship website, I decided to give it a go.
