You need English and maths skills to get on in life. They will support your studies at the College, help with everyday tasks and pave the way to future career success.
If you don’t already have a grade C or above in GCSE English and Maths – or equivalent qualifications – you will continue studying these subjects as part of your course at Derby College.
We’ll support you all the way: working with you on the right programme of development throughout your time with us.
When you’ve completed your course, why not broaden your horizons further still at Derby College? Additional qualifications in subjects such as Retail are exciting choices. Or check out our courses in Business, Enterprise and Management if you would like to set up a venture of your own.
Apprentice Jordan Green scooped the Young Chef of the Year title in the Derby Food and Drink Awards – an accolade which he hopes will fast track his career ambitions.
Jordan was among a group of full-time Catering and Hospitality learners who progressed to an apprenticeship with the College’s Engine Shed restaurant and training kitchens at the Roundhouse campus.
His apprenticeship opened doors to many opportunities – including a work placement with Derby’s award-winning Restaurant Zest. He also took part in a European work experience programme in Denmark, spending five weeks at the Danish Meat Trade College in Roskilde alongside learners from Estonia, Italy and Finland.
I really want to be working in fine dining and to learn from the best in the industry. Hopefully winning this award will help me at the start of my career.
