Personal & Professional Development Programmes

Take charge of your future with an engaging range of personal and skills development opportunities.

Enhance your study programme

Your studies are central to getting you started on your future career path, but we offer more than a classroom through our exciting Personal and Professional Development programmes (PPD), these are focused on supporting your academic studies through a range of activities, clubs, trips and visits.

As a student at Franklin, you’ll be able to mix and match Personal and Professional Development activities all tailored to your future aspirations and interests, developing transferable skills. With endless opportunities to take part in memorable experiences, make new friends, and build your confidence, aspirations and skills you won't have thought of as you start to make your future plans a reality.  

Pick from our professional and personal development programmes to help progress onto your next steps.



Making memories is all part of college life. Do you love watching films? If so, then you’ll probably enjoy our film club. If you spend your evenings and weekends absorbed in esports, we have teams for that too. If a trip to Dubai or Rome is on your wish list, let’s book the tickets. If you're a keen sportsperson, get involved in our daily sports programme and regional sports teams. With over 70 clubs on offer, you'll be spoilt for choice.

We also have opportunities to work with professionals and gain valuable work placements through our Centre for Professional Development and its fantastic links with employers – Law/Teaching/Aspiring Medics/Teaching Academy, to name a few. You can also complete the Extended Project Qualification alongside your Study Programme. Getting into the habit of enhancing your learning will set you up for a lifetime of countless opportunities in the future.

Whatever your interests, our PPD programmes will broaden your horizons and give you the skills to set you on the path to success.
