Vocational studies

These courses are delivered mainly through our co-located partner colleges – the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London, and West Thames College, in West London.

Mainstream vocational heads of department, with support from Ambitious College staff, assess our learners for entry onto these courses. Our learners can follow a mainstream vocational programme that matches their interests and/or career ambitions. They will also receive support from specialist staff.
