This full-time, one-year course is aimed at 16-19-year-olds who would benefit from an additional year in general education. Students develop the employability and study skills required to progress on to a Level 1 qualification in Foundation Learning or on to another Level 1 introductory course.
Students on this course also improve their English, Maths, and ICT skills, alongside their main qualification, whilst also developing employability skills and vocational experience in all or some of the following areas: Café Chino, helping in the workshop, maintaining the College garden/allotment, or assisting in the enterprise/arts workshop.
The programme is accredited through Edexcel and students are given the opportunity to achieve externally accredited qualifications. Depending on progression routes, these qualifications are either awards or certificates.
This course can be tailored to individual needs and allows learners to try vocational areas before deciding to specialise in their further study. The emphasis is to improve individual skills in English and Maths.
Teaching in small groups and the additional support provided on this course has delivered very high success rates and progression to further study in recent years.
No formal entry requirements but students will generally be able to demonstrate English skills at Entry Level 3 and demonstrate a willingness to learn and progress.
Progression opportunities include the Moving On Programme or other Level 1 courses in areas such as Childcare, Beauty Therapy, Creative Arts and Media, Hospitality and Catering, Motor Vehicle, and Sport.
