Professional training

In some jobs you may need further qualifications on top of your degree that lead to qualified status.

Qualified status may be gained through chartership, the completion of professional exams or reaching a required level of competence in your profession. These qualifications usually give you designatory letters after your name.

Check with your professional body - what are the requirements for membership/chartership? Is the course you are considering recognised by the profession/employers as a valid entry route?

A Levels and GCSEs

Improve your grades, take a new subject, or learn for pleasure. Usually available in further education colleges there may be a variety of study modes including accelerated courses or evening courses.

Contact local colleges in your area to find out what they offer
