This qualification has been developed for young people who are undecided on which course to study, so are wishing to have their achievements recognised across a number of different course areas.

Boasting small class sizes, with an average of 13 students per class, this course is most suited for students who are looking to re-engage with mainstream education.


Course Content

This qualification is linked to our main vocational courses, and is made up of the following areas:

  • Health and Social Care
  • Sport and Public Services
  • Child Care
  • Construction
  • Hair and Beauty

The type of additional units you will be covering could include: 

  • Appearance and behaviour in the workplace
  • Self-assessment
  • Career progression
  • Vocational units

Students will also complete work-related activities and work experience in an area of interest, which is a compulsory part of the study programme.


Who is this qualification for?
This qualification is designed for students aged 16-18 who are working at Entry Level 3/Level 1.

The nature and structure of the qualification will also appeal to young people who may need to re-engage with learning and education, or those who have a general interest in vocational careers, but need to explore which path they wish to choose.

Entry Requirements
Placement onto this course is subject to a successful interview. No previous knowledge or qualifications are required for the vocational subjects, however a good level of understanding in English and maths is expected. 


On successful completion of this course, students will have the opportunity to apply for a Level 1 or Level 2 course in their main area of interest.
Students may also have the opportunity to advance into a department outside of the options available for this course, provided that their behaviour and work ethic is appropriate. 

(Progression onto a higher level of course will also be subject to English and maths results.)
