Study Options

At Yeovil College, we plan everyone’s education and learning around ‘study programmes’, which is a package of education suited to your career pathway. Your programme will include all education, enrichment and additional activities, which will ultimately provide you with your ‘Yeovil Edge.’ Your post-16 options are vast. How you prefer to learn and what you want to do beyond Yeovil College should inform what you choose next, whether that’s A Levels, T Levels, an Apprenticeship or a Vocational qualification. One is not better than the other, however one will suit you more than another. How you prefer to learn, how you perform at assessment and your post-18 career intentions are the most important considerations when making your decision about the types of qualification or study programme, for your next steps; and remember the options available to you at Yeovil College are vast.
