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 Art and Design, Customer Service, Logistics or Travel and Tourism 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.
Fashion enthusiast Richard Auzins has used his Diploma in Visual Merchandising as a springboard to working with Marks & Spencer
Richard has started out as a warehouse operative at the company’s distribution centre in Castle Donington, with a view to progressing his merchandising career within M&S. He especially enjoys dealing with the online sales side of the operation.
Richard had originally considered university but then discovered the specialist advanced course in Visual Merchandising at Derby College. Keen on keeping up with latest fashion trends, the course enabled him to translate his passion for fashion into a career.
Although I’m working in logistics, I’m still involved with fashion and homewares every day. The Derby College course helped me get the job and having a qualification in retail merchandising has made me more confident in sharing my ideas at work.
I’d like to move into visual merchandising one day but at the moment I enjoy what I do and M&S is a great business to work for.
