What I'll learn
This course will give you an introduction to health and childcare and time to think about your future career. We arrange for support from our college careers advisers who are there to help you choose your next step.
How I'll learn
You will learn in a supported environment at a pace that suits you. You will have the chance to complete a vocational qualification in health and childcare and this will give you practical hands-on experience.
This is a one year full-time course which you attend three days a week. Learning will take place through a range of classroom based activities, practical hands on learning, research activities, educational visits and work experience.
How I'll be assessed
Your tutor will work with you to set individual learning targets each term and you will get feedback on your progress. You will take part in interactive and fun activities where assessment is continuous rather than by exam and you will complete a portfolio as evidence of your learning.
Functional skills and GCSE maths and English will be assessed through external examinations.
You will gain a Vocational Certificate in Learning, Employability and Progression on completion of your studies.
On successful completion of the course, you may move on to a full-time Level 2 course, an apprenticeship or employment.
