Vocational Studies

We run this course for those learners that aren’t yet fully sure of what career they’d like to follow.

In addition to the mandatory units on self assessment and career progression, it includes a variety of units from career areas such as childcare, hair & beauty, tourism, business administration and art & design. These provide a taster of various careers that should assist in making the decision as to what to do the following year – whether it be further training or employment.

This one-year course is run within the framework of the Study Programme. You will work towards a Level 1 Diploma in Vocational Studies awarded by Edexcel supplemented by periods of work placement to enhance the experience.

In common with all of our vocational training courses, support in maths and English is provided for those learners that haven’t achieved GCSE grade C in school. This can take the form of resit GCSEs or functional skills.
