Vocational training prepares learners for jobs that are based in manual or practical activities and related to a specific trade, occupation or vocation. It covers a wide range of subject areas and tends to be more hands on than academic qualifications might be.
Our world is changing fast, and we all need more skills than ever before. 2 out of 3 jobs in the future will require a higher level of skills and better qualifications.
South Thames College offers an exciting range of work-related subjects that will help you to develop the skills and experience necessary to build a career. You can work towards qualifications that lead straight into employment or on to university-level education and qualifications.
Our courses are designed with your future employability in mind. We work closely with industry partners across all areas of the curriculum and have a great track-record for teaching students the practical skills they need to succeed in the world of work.
Learning really comes to life at South Thames with interesting and creative timetables that include work placements, visits to businesses and group discussions. We have excellent facilities in all subject areas and have invested £100m to improve these and ensure you get the learning environment you deserve. These include fully operational construction workshops, hair and beauty salons, motorbike and musical instrument workshops, professional TV, film and radio studios, industry standard music technology suites and recording studios, a newly equipped drama studio, sports halls and a fitness studio.
