What I'll learn
This course will give you an introduction to the construction industry 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.
You will learn in a supported environment at a pace that suits you. You will have the chance to complete a vocational qualification and this will give you practical hands-on experience.
How I'll learn
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.
Your tutor will work with you to set individual learning targets each term and you will get feedback on your progress. You will be assessed through creating a folder of evidence for each subject. You will be assessed at a level that suits you. Functional skills and GCSE maths and English will be assessed through external examinations.
How I'll be assessed
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.
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.
