Further Education

Further education is for people over sixteen, taking courses at various levels up to the standard required for entry into higher education. It is often vocational, or work-based, with emphasis on the needs of employers. Vocational education is very flexible and is constantly being revised and developed to meet these needs.

Further education also provides continued general education for people of all ages. People use further education to study academic subjects and explore recreational activities, as well as to develop and upgrade work skills.

Further education colleges usually offer a range of full-time and part-time vocational courses, as well as more academic and higher education courses. Many of the courses provide qualifications which are accepted for entry into UK universities.
