At Carlisle College, part of NCG, we have a range of Higher Education courses that get you work ready. Designed with local employers we ensure that all our courses give you the graduate skills and knowledge needed in your industry.

It’s never too late to gain higher level qualifications and whether you are 18 or 80, our flexible delivery models allow you to study full time or part time around work.

If you are already employed, talk to your employer about how higher level apprenticeships and degree apprenticeships can improve their business by increasing your knowledge.

If you’re not sure whether you have the correct qualifications see our Entry Criteria Guide, or if your education comes from the ‘University of Life’ and you have no formal qualifications, look at our Access to HE programmes to boost your knowledge.

We’ve been delivering HE for many years, so have a browse around our HE pages and see how we can help you achieve your goals.
