Robin said: “This is a very stressful time for young people and we thought it was important to give easy to follow advice on what they should do if they need to apply for a place at university through the clearing system.

“This includes contact details for our own Higher Education courses at Derby College which are available at our campuses in Derby, Morley and Ilkeston with full and part time programmes which are very focused on job opportunities in the area.”

There are currently 419 higher education studying at the College who work alongside the 6,000 full time students and a further 20,000 adult, part time and apprenticeship learners.

Part time courses aimed at people who are combining studies with full time work include programmes in Construction Management, Construction and the Built Environment, Business, Children’s and Young People’s Services and Education.

New courses starting in September include Foundation Degrees in Special Educational Needs and Disability and Integrated Engineering.

Full time courses for young people and adult learners returning to education are already established in Animal Management, Security and Offender Management, Sport Coaching, Integrated and General Engineering.

New full time courses will start in September in Engineering and Mathematics, Paralegal Studies, Criminal Justice, International Hospitality Management and Computing.
