Year 11 Leaver? LifeSkills and Progressions have the course for you!

It’s an ever changing Covid landscape at the moment and all our centres are already working hard interviewing and offering places on our fabulous work based training programmes for August start. It’s never too early to start looking at your options for when you leave school and our experienced and friendly staff are on-hand to guide you every step of the way and help you create your brighter future.

When can I apply to start a LifeSkills/Progressions course in August?

You can apply now!

If you’re interested in studying with us from August, you can apply directly to your local LifeSkills or Progressions centre and our brilliant Ofsted ‘highly commended’ advice team will guide you through your options.

You can always send us a message to with all your contact details and we will be in touch asap.

Just look at what some of our most recent students had to say about us!

What happens after I have applied?

After you have applied for a course to start this August, we will be in touch to have a chat.

Currently it is difficult to conduct face-to-face interviews with potential students and we will be using the telephone or Zoom to get the details we need and answer any questions you might have.  One of our Information and Guidance team will contact you to discuss your application and give you the information you need about the course and what happens next.

Our team will guide you through all the course options and of course, answer any questions you might have.

I have had my interview, what happens next?

Once you have had your interview and accepted your place on a course, we will of course keep in touch with you using the details you have given us and keep you up to date on any latest developments.

During the Summer, we will send you a pre-induction task for your chosen course, nothing too arduous, but will need completing prior to joining the course to ensure that you aren’t disadvantaged by the current Covid situation and that we can support you to continue your studies.

Next stage is enrolment, where you will be asked to share your GCSE results with us.  There is a lot of uncertainty about grades this year, so don’t worry if you don’t get the results you were expecting as we will make sure you’re on the right course for you and support you with any learning you need.

When will I start college?

Things do change and we all hope that Covid will not impact upon August starts and change everyone’s plans and currently we are planning an August start in centres – fingers crossed!

We are looking forward to welcoming you to LifeSkills and Progressions very soon and let’s start to create a brighter future for you.

If you have any questions at all, contact the number you were given at your initial interview or email
