Work with training Vocational qualifications Most of the study options available at Swindon College are vocational, which is to say they are aimed at giving students as much practical experience in their chosen trade or industry as possible, which complements classroom-based study to effectively prepare students for the workplace. Sometimes this can be through Apprenticeships, where students are paid to work four days a week and come into college one day a week. To view our latest course information, click here.
