Still in school (14-16)

Increase your confidence

We offer our ‘Still in school’ students the chance to build your skills and boost your confidence by working in industry standard facilities across our wide range of courses.

Increase your confidence

Our ‘still at school’ courses are a great opportunity for you to develop new practical skills as well as build confidence.

In agreement with your school you can choose from a range of subject areas as well as different qualification levels.

You will study towards a vocational qualification alongside your school studies with our classes running across our Huddersfield and Dewsbury centres.

The classes on our ‘still at school’ courses are usually smaller than your school class with a maximum number of 14 students per class. We will be announcing new classes for 2016/17 very soon.

We will also give you the opportunity to work in industry standard facilities including: workshops, salons and kitchens to name a few.

Taster Sessions

Tasters are a great way to find out about a subject area and decide if it’s the right option for you. They are open to students in Years 9-13. Sessions are targeted to Years 11-13 during October to December, Years 9-10 during January to March and Year 9 during April to June.

Download our taster activities booklet to see what we have to offer.
