What Will I Learn?
Your timetable will be designed around a choice of vocational tasters, work skills, maths, English and enrichment activities. You will work towards achieving a Level 1 or 2 in maths and English and a BTEC qualification in Vocational Skills. You will develop the skills needed to secure paid employment and the skills needed to successfully work alongside your peers in a vocational environment. Successful achievement of maths and English will also offer the opportunity to progress to a Level 2 vocational subject here at the College.
Where Will It Take Me?
Following a successful programme of vocational tasters and preparation for employment skills, you will be ready for paid employment. You may also decide to progress to a Vocational Course at Level 2 if you have achieved the necessary entry requirement.
At the start of your course you will undergo an initial assessment in English and maths so that your tutors will know what you still need to learn and to enable you to be taught at the right level. Your progress in maths and English is examined throughout the course.
Information & Support
Throughout your course you will receive support from your personal tutor and learning support assistants. In addition, specialist careers advisors will be on hand to support you with your next steps and Student Services are available to offer advice and guidance on finance, benefits and emotional issues.
