Many students progress onto jobs once they have completed their full-time study programmes, and other Level 3 students progress onto Higher Education to study towards a degree, such as the BSc (Hons) Psychology at Wirral Met College, which is validated by the University of Liverpool.

These courses equip students with the skills and knowledge to progress onto occupations including:

Starting salaries for Care Assistants can be between £12,000 and £16,000 per year. With experience, qualifications and extra responsibilities or specialist support worker skills, Care Assistants may earn between £18,000 and £21,000 per year.
