Dearne Valley College is a Further Education (FE) college based in the heart of South Yorkshire. The College specialises in Vocational Training and Apprenticeships - this means that all our coursesfocus on the skills required by industry with an emphasis on employability. Training is often undertaken in real life working environments or in the actual work place.
You will also need to check out specific grades required in a particular subject for some courses. Remember when you apply from School, we are looking at your probable GCSE grades. We don't make anyfinal decision until you have your results. In many cases this means we might work on a 'Plan A' and a 'Plan B' with you. No -GCSE qualification in a related subject can count towards this total but we will also look at your overall academic profile.
The doors of the college are always open and we would love to show you what we do, listen to your views on it and continue to strive for continual improvement. The ultimate aim is happy, healthy youngpeople well prepared for the demands of working in a top class industry.
