Students who have been studying Vocational Education and Training have had a busy and successful year. They have completed all their qualifications and also taken part in the Ten Tors Jubilee Challenge and finished a residential trip at Calvert Trust in Devon.
Julian Holyer and Ben Evis were just two of the students who faced their fears and were pushed to their limits through activities including climbing, abseiling, zip wire, giant swing and horse riding. The Ten Tors trip was a great opportunity to put their team work and communication skills into practice.
Julian Roberts, Deputy Team Leader commented: “The students have coped really well with all the challenges that have been set for them and although the students arrived at college with few, if any, formal qualifications most are now either accessing mainstream or preparing for work”.
The College provides exciting opportunities for learners who have no recognised qualifications or whose qualifications may fall short of a mainstream course. There are pathways into work with a dedicated job coach and opportunities to gain qualifications in English, Maths and ICT. There is also a chance to taste different vocational areas with the view of accessing mainstream the following year.
