Guide to picking a course

Choosing the right 16-18 course is a significant decision in your educational journey, and at Wirral Met College, we understand the importance of finding the perfect fit for your interests, goals, and future career aspirations.

If you’re still not sorted for September or if you’re unhappy with your current college course, don’t worry! We’re still accepting applications across a wide range of career-led courses starting this month.

In this easy guide, we will walk you through the steps to help you pick the perfect course at Wirral Met College.

Access your current skills

The first step in finding the perfect course is to assess your skills. Consider your interests, passions, strengths, and weaknesses. Ask yourself:

  • What subjects or fields do I enjoy studying or working in?
  • What are my long-term career goals?
  • What skills do I want to develop or improve?
