For those aged 16-19 who have a general interest in a range of subject areas and are finding it difficult to choose which pathway to specialise in.

Units include:

  • sport
  • health and social care
  • art and design
  • digital skills.

You will have the opportunity to attend enrichment sessions and take part in vocationally- based projects. You will also contribute to the planning and delivery of fundraising events, enjoy regular professional visits and take part in real-life work experience, giving you the extra skills and knowledge needed in your chosen field.

No formal entry requirements are necessary but a positive attitude to learning is needed.

This course combines both theory and practical sessions and you will be assessed in a variety of ways (activity, group work, photographic and video) which will be presented through a portfolio of evidence.

All our courses are planned around your individual learning needs, with a timetable that clearly identifies the sessions that will be taught. You will be assigned a Programme Lead who will support you throughout your time in College. Teaching staff will work closely with you to help you achieve planned learning goals. Our staff are experienced at delivering classes to meet your needs and will work with you to build your confidence and skills. Our learning centres are equipped with modern resources that will support you to achieve positive outcomes.

To give you the best possible chance of successfully completing your qualification, 100% attendance is expected for the duration of the course. English, maths, work experience, tutorials and employability sessions all form part of the overall qualification and non-attendance to any of these sessions may result in the overall qualification not being achieved. Continued non-attendance to any timetabled sessions may result in losing your place on the course.

You could consider the next step in your educational journey with one of our Level 2 Awards that will further enable your progression to a higher-level course or an apprenticeship.
