Discover your path.

We have a whole host of courses available for school leavers.  Courses that show you what’s happening in your industry right now, and in the near future.

What’s more, you get to pick up the technical knowledge and attributes of a Walsall College Graduate that will prepare you for work or University.

Most subjects are also available in different pathways.  Not sure which is right for you? Don’t worry, we’ll help you discover your passion and your perfect path.

Here’s what you need to know about each one.

Qualifications and ways to study
