What you need to know
FE caters to a wide range of learners of different ages – from 14 to adult – who are gaining a variety of qualifications, ranging from basic literacy and numeracy to higher-level apprenticeships and technical qualifications, including the new T levels, which are vocational alternatives to A levels.
FE students come from a range of backgrounds and experiences, and may enter FE from local schools, the community, industry or local business. Because there’s no national curriculum for FE, courses are often tailored to meet employer needs and are delivered in a range of different settings – including colleges, community centres and private training providers, as well as the workplace.
For more information, please visit the FE Advice website or phone 0300 303 1877.
