Every full time student has an individual study programme which brings together the qualifications and skills that you need to have the best opportunities to progress to the next level of your studies or to employment. What’s in your study programme will depend on what you have already achieved and what your next step will be towards your eventual career.
You start by choosing your main course – and when we meet you we’ll put the rest of the programme together with you.
If you haven’t yet achieved English and Maths GCSE at grade C it will include either GCSE or functional skills at a level to enable you to keep studying and get employed.
Depending on which main course you choose, coupled with your English and Maths needs, there may be work experience, an extended project or preparing to enter employment as part of your study programme.
Study programmes are all 540 hours and all parts of your programme are compulsory.
