FE College, Sixth Form and Sixth Form College watch

    • Thread Starter

    What's the difference between them? Which one is considered better? The area where I live doesn't have any Sixth Forms, so I don't think that's really an option for me- but I want to know the difference!

    FE colleges are colleges which provide vocational courses, some offer both vocational courses and A levels.Sixth form is connected to school, usually offer A levels and BTEC.Sixth form college is the same except not connected to a school, you'll find some that only offer A level however.

    I don't think it really matters where you go, as long as the teaching is not terrible.
