Vocational Studies

Our vocational courses are aimed at students working at levels 1 and 2 (within the GCSE range) but have not achieved a full range of GCSE qualifications. The students will work on one or more main subject areas, chosen from the following options:

Arts & Media including Photography
Business & Administration
Extended Project Qualification
Functional Skills Maths and English
Independent Advocacy
Sport Leadership

In addition students will work on their personal development with their future in mind, developing employability, maths, English and ICT skills. They will also attend sessions in cookery, sport and enterprise.

Students following this route will be working towards an accredited vocational course within the QCF Framework. The focus will very much be on preparation for employment. However, progression to advanced courses at either Treloar College, or through the partnership with Alton College, opens many other doors and leads to either employment, voluntary working or to higher education.
