After leaving school at 16 and working in a range of jobs for eight years, Darren Spencer from Buxton thought he’d left it too late to fulfil his career ambitions. But following a one-year access course at Buxton & Leek College in 2013, he won a place at the University of Surrey and is now set for a high-profile career in the Civil Service.

Subjects open to study include business, sport, beauty, spa therapy, engineering, health & social care and hairdressing.  Education, media, performing arts, carpentry & joinery, public services, travel and art & design courses are also included in the College prospectus.


Some people prefer to earn while they learn with the help of an apprenticeship. The College is open to hearing from students who are interested in one-day-a-week training positions, available as part of a full time job with various employers in the area.

Business owners are also approaching the College with an apprenticeship in mind, whether it is a family member helping in the family business or an employee that needs additional training alongside their work.

Jake Burton, aged 26 from Chinley decided it was time to settle down and get a serious job, and so he turned his attention to Buxton & Leek College to make his career dreams come true, embarking on the Accounting and Finance (AAT Foundation Certificate) in 2016. Within a year he had finished the course and has already entered the industry as an Account Assistant at recruitment specialist Senitor in Wilmslow.
