Get where you want to be. Many popular careers require a degree or qualification in a relevant subject – which many people cannot access, due to not completing their education earlier on. If you are looking to change your life and get that dream job – an Access Course may be the way to do it. These programmes allow people of all backgrounds to catch-up on the qualifications they need in order to apply for a degree programme, and get where they want to be.

www.seevic-college.ac.uk www.seevic-college.ac.uk

Other less specialised jobs may still require qualifications like GCSEs, leaving many talented people out of work. By investing a small amount of time in getting a qualification, you’re not only gaining relevant skills - you show current and potential employers your commitment and dedication to developing and achieving more. Doing a course also helps build your confidence, and improves your CV with the skills employers are looking for.

We understand that it’s been a while since you last studied, so we make sure sessions are creative and engaging, with dedicated support staff offering advice every step of the way. Now is your chance to realise your potential - by studying or training alongside other people who want to achieve more. Turn over to see our course offer, or contact our advice team on 01268 882666 for guidance about available courses & funding options.

SUCCESS STORY

“I decided to return to education after 25 years, having left school at 15 with no qualifications.” “At Seevic College I completed an Access to Higher Education course as I knew I would need qualifications to find a career. The staff were very helpful, encouraging and supportive throughout the course. I was amazed at how much I enjoyed learning and still do. Since completing the course at Seevic, I have been to university and completed a degree in Business Administration gaining a 2:1. I then attended the Institute of Education for teacher training and am currently completing an MA in Education.

www.seevic-college.ac.uk www.seevic-college.ac.uk

I was not confident at all when I started, but looking at the first piece of work I completed on the Access Course and comparing this to my Masters dissertation, I can see how much I have learnt and developed. Gaining qualifications gives you confidence and choices about your future”. Linda Brooks Former Adult Learner at Seevic College

Apprenticeships An Apprenticeship Programme is a brilliant first step on a career path in many industries and a great way to improve your skills and career prospects while earning a salary. Apprenticeships are a nationally recognised work-based learning scheme. They combine work with learning and training, both on and off the job and they provide the skills to gain employment in a specific career field. The programmes normally last between 12 and 18 months depending on the level and speed at which you progress. Assessment is mainly through assessment in the workplace, practical assignments and can include exams. We offer Level 2, Level 3 and Level 4 Apprenticeships, based at our sites at Benfleet and New Campus Basildon.

Get qualified. In this tough economic climate, unemployment remains high and the competition for jobs and promotions is fierce. In some sectors a qualification is necessary in order to start working or progressing further. In others it can show an employer you are motivated and determined to specialise and get ahead, and are ready to take on more responsibility. A relevant qualification on a CV can often boost the chances of candidates with little experience, and be the deciding factor in employers inviting candidates for interviews.

www.seevic-college.ac.uk www.seevic-college.ac.uk

Most qualifications have no academic entry requirements – allowing talented people to develop their skills and find employment regardless of how well they’ve done in previous education. Achieving a qualification can also mean an investment towards your future income – with qualified workers often earning more and progressing further than their non-qualified colleagues. To help you achieve all this and more, we offer a range of evening and weekend courses to suit people in full time employment.

Our courses suit both people who already work in a relevant role and want to progress, and those wanting to change careers while working elsewhere. Our careers team are available to help you choose the right course, offer advice on finding work once you have achieved a qualification, as well as support you while you study. So if you’re ambitious and motivated to achieve more, turn the page to have a look through our range of qualifications.
