Increase your options

At Kirklees College we offer all of our students the best education opportunities in Kirklees, with recent national data proving our full time students get the best results in the country.

Our most recent results show that 98 per cent of our full time students passed their courses with many going on to higher education or securing a higher level Apprenticeship.

Our vocational courses will help increase your options after college and you will be taught by our highly experienced and dedicated staff, all of which will help you to succeed in your desired career path.

Our strong industry links will provide you with a wealth of opportunities, from regular guest speakers to work experience opportunities.

I’m hoping to go to uni and then go on to do teaching in a college environment, so further education.
