Level 3 Qualifications to Help you Progress in Your Career 

The Lifelong Learning team offers several Level 3 Diplomas, providing you with the opportunity to gain a recognised, accredited qualification, enabling you to take your career to the next level and/or providing access to further education.  

The Level 3 is equivalent to a GCSE A-Level but, unlike A-Levels, Level 3s are flexible, can be completed in approximately 9 months and are coursework based, so no dreaded exam at the end of the course. 

We are currently offering opportunities in: 

  • Leadership & Management 
  • Lead Adult Care
  • Teaching Assistant

You must currently be employed in one of these sectors to apply and the courses are free (subject to eligibility criteria), starting in January 2023. Once you have registered, one of our trained advisors will contact you to establish your eligibility and to discuss the programme in further detail.  For those not qualifying for free provision, prices are available on request
