Practical learning
If you’ve had enough of sitting in a classroom and you’d like to learn through practical experience, a BTEC qualification could be just what you’re looking for! With Level 3 courses equivalent to A Levels, they are a recognised pathway to higher education at university. 

Hopwood Hall is also one of the highest performing colleges in Greater Manchester, with success rates that put them at the top of the league table for two years running. They also excel on the sporting field and have a legacy of developing successful sportsmen and women including footballer Craig Dawson and double Olympic gold medallist boxer Nicola Adams.

Additionally, all their students benefit from free gym membership, free breakfast, 8 free bus routes and up to £30 bursary per week (terms and conditions apply).

Visit their Open Day on Saturday 4 February 10am – 2pm.
