It allows students to sample different vocational subjects to see what they enjoy and attend transition sessions with other departments to ensure they are moving to the right course for them.
There is an emphasis on showcasing your willingness to achieve on a college course, build your English and maths skills, build confidence and team building.
What is covered?
A range of units from different vocational areas will be delivered in class with the additional opportunity to have taster sessions across different areas of the college to help you progress on the following year. The course will also include English, maths and independent living skills where required.
