Application Guide

There are a number of ways that you can apply for one of our courses:

  • Full time applications
    If you are 16-18 or an adult you will often apply through our Enterprise platform.
  • Part-time applications
    If you are applying for a part-time qualification then you will normally apply via our Enterprise platform
  • Short courses
    If you are applying for a short course you may just be asked to register your interest, purchase your place via Eventbrite or apply via our online application tool. Either way you will be guided through the steps to apply or purchase your course.

Full-time and part-time applications

If you are applying, you may need to register with our Enterprise platform. Enterprise will manage your personal information, applications and interview dates with us and give you control to choose what to apply for, your interview dates and to accept your offers.
