What are the entry requirements?
There are no formal qualification requirements for you to access this course but it helps if you have a basic level of maths and can use a calculator to carry out simple calculations.
If you are not eligible, the cost of the course is £25.00. If you choose to stay residentially, and you are not eligible via the residential funding assessment, there will be an additional fee to pay. The vast majority of students are eligible to study and stay residentially for free and we will confirm when you apply.
Most jobs require you to have Level 2 in English and Maths. These qualifications are important in jobs that are most employable in the South and West Yorkshire Regions such as Education and Health and Social Care sector.
“I am enjoying being back in education - learning, meeting awsome people and getting my confidence back.” - Craig
Great tutors for Maths, and all the staff are helpful and friendly.
Staying residential at Northern College gave me time to breathe. Most of the learning would come about when talking with others, over meals and our free time. Walking in the garden before breakfast is inspirational.
Absolutely beautiful place to learn, stunning scenery to help set you at ease with staff and tutors that go above and beyond. I can't express how much Northern College has helped me.
Absolutely loved my time at Northern College and would recommend to everyone as it's the best thing I did.
