Whether you're considering A Levels or Vocational study after your GCSEs, we have a course to suit you, delivered in our outstanding facilities at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre by tutors who are passionate about their subjects. Or, if you prefer, you can enter the world of work as an Apprentice and gain practical skills alongside a nationally-recognised qualification. Whatever you choose to study, we’ll make sure you have everything you need to be successful.


If you’re looking for an excellent academic foundation to take you on to university study and a successful career path, A Levels will suit you. At Burnley College we offer a comprehensive range of A Level subject choices and an outstanding reputation for results which have taken former students to the UK’s leading universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. Our results speak for themselves with a 100% pass rate in 34 subjects and record high grades.

Vocational courses are structured differently to A Levels, with more coursework-based learning and hands-on activities and fewer exams. As a Vocational student at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre you will take part in exciting trips and activities, and enjoy visits from guest speakers, as you head towards a dream career with a leading employer, progression to university or an Advanced Apprenticeship.

Apprenticeships allow you to combine work and study through on-the-job training with classroom learning. Themis is the Apprenticeship arm of Burnley College, working with more than 700 leading employers to help you take the first step on the career ladder. We will work closely with you to help you shine at interview with the perfect CV and presentation skills and, once accepted on your Apprenticeship, you will be supported by our industry-leading trainers.
