Activate Learning is a forward-thinking education group working across further and higher education, schools, apprenticeships and training. We transform lives through learning.
Get the UCAS points you need to apply for university with our exciting range of A Levels.
In 2016–17, nearly 600 Activate Learning students went on to study courses at over 90 different higher education providers across the UK, including Oxford University and King’s College London, and at 18 out of the 24 universities that make up the world-class Russell Group.
We have organised our subjects into pathways, which lead you to different career destinations. Each pathway provides a selection of A Level choices, helping you gain the UCAS points you need for your university application.
You will be encouraged to expand your skills with additional activities, such as joining the Learner Voice network, taking on summer internships and participating on student trips. We will help your UCAS application be as strong as possible, so that you can impress university admissions teams, as an academically-able, well-rounded, independent individual.
Please choose three A Level subjects from within one pathway. Please contact us to discuss any requests to mix subjects from different pathways.
You can choose three subjects:
(If you are selecting maths or science, you'll need a GCSE in that subject at Grade 5 or above)
You'll need six GCSEs at Grade 4 (C) or above, including English language, maths, additional science, plus three other academic subjects. Tutorial/ Extended Project Qualification is compulsory for all pathways.
At Activate Learning, we provide every student with a career pathway; a plan, with clear, practical steps you can take to achieve the career of your dreams.
This will help you get the skills, attributes and knowledge that future employers want, giving you a greater chance of success.
Our career pathway maps will show you the best routes through college, higher education and employment and into the most popular industry sectors.
A Levels are still the most popular route into university in the UK.
A full-time A Level programme (three subjects) typically includes four hours of teaching per subject per week, plus tutorial and independent study time.
A Level students at Activate Learning benefit from our links with leading universities, such as the University of Reading, Oxford Brookes University, the University of Winchester and Southampton Solent University
In autumn each year, second year A Level students take part in UCAS Takeover Week, attending workshops run by universities on subjects such as personal statements and student finance. Each college also has a higher education fair, with over 40 university exhibitors on campus.
In addition to university links, employers such as Penningtons Manches, a leading law firm, provide legal masterclasses for A Level students.
