Overview of the course
This course is ideal for learners who don’t yet know which career path they want to follow and need to develop their maths and English skills.
What you'll learn
Learners will study maths, English and employability skills and have a weekly tutorial. Learners will also sample three vocational areas from a choice of 13 around College and complete a 30 hour work placement.
The following vocational areas are available:
• Art and Media
• Business and IT
• Health and Social Care
• Motor Vehicle
• Painting & Decorating
• Performing Arts
There are no formal entry requirements but we will ask learners to complete a Maths and English assessment before joining the course so that we can assess the learning level in these subjects. Learners need to be aged 16 to 18 years old.
How will I be assessed?
Assessment is on-going throughout the course and learners will receive prompt detailed feedback from tutors on work completed. Learners will work towards end of year exams in maths and English.

We want you to enjoy every minute of College, both in the classroom and out of it, so we have a range of dedicated support and wellbeing services. These include FREE travel; FREE breakfast; dedicated Learning Development Mentors; impartial advice and guidance; dedicated oneto-
one support for learners with additional needs; and support with the cost of College, plus much more.
On completion of this course learners can progress to a mainstream course within the College or a pathway course within Pathways to Progression.
