What can I do with a College qualification?

Gaining a college level qualification while you are still at school looks good on your applications for college, university, a modern apprenticeship, or a job. The qualification will help you demonstrate your skills and knowledge in a specific subject area, making you a more desirable candidate. You may also be able to progress to a higher level qualification at college, giving you a head start when you have left school.
