Why take this course?

This course allows you to try out different options at College, which will help you to plan your future and help you to decide whether or not you might like to attend College full-time after leaving school. It also helps you to build key transferrable skills that will prove extremely useful when you progress towards further study or employment.

If the school has informed the College that you may need help in class or at break times, a College Learning Support Assistant (LSA) will be allocated. All workshop-based sessions have an LSA in the class.

What you will experience

You will meet your tutor on the first day of the course, and they will be happy to give you lots of advice and help you with any problems you might be having. Your tutor will check whether you are at College or not, and your school will be informed.

There is a wide range of subject choices available, which your school will go over with you and help you to choose. The College will try to make sure you get your favourite subjects as far as possible, but choices are delivered based on availability – therefore, not all courses can be delivered at both Centres.
