This is a full-time introductory programme for young people who left school without formal qualifications but who want to go on to study a Level 1 course. Students study the Prince’s Trust qualifications in Personal Development and Employability Skills, which recognise the personal skills, qualities and attitudes needed to progress onto education and needed by employers across a range of sectors.
Students can join the course in September, January or at Easter, and the qualifications are offered as an Award, Certificate and Diploma. Students develop English and maths skills through a range of stepping stone qualifications, with a GCSE re-sit option for students with a Grade 3 who start in September.
To help transition into Further Education, students spend one day per week in the main college completing units with vocational staff. Students switch vocational area every half term and experience what it is like to study in a variety of curriculum areas: Art & Design, Media & Music Technology, Performing Arts, Construction, Motor Vehicle, Animal Care, Catering, Sport and Computing.
