This one year course is aimed at students who wish to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding by applying their learning and skills in a work related context. Taken as a part of a balanced curriculum, vocational qualifications provide a tried and trusted progression route to further study, to an apprenticeship or into employment.

The teaching team create a series of relevant assignments, which can be written or activity based, offering variety to your learning. The format of the assignments are varied and could include activities such as creating a film clip, planning a presentation, creating a business plan or writing a report.

The assessments are completed through a combination of internal and external assessment. There are opportunities to develop skills in English and Mathematics and these are indicated in the units where appropriate. These give learners the opportunity to practice essential skills in naturally occurring and meaningful contexts.
