What is a Study Programme?
A study programme is a balanced programme of study designed to provide young people with skills and qualifications that will help them to find work or to progress into higher levels of learning. It is made up of a main area of study – referred to as a "substantial qualification" – which will make up around half of the programme. This could be A levels*, GCSEs, a BTEC or other vocational qualification such as a diploma. The rest of the programme will be made up of work experience, work skills (employability and enterprise), and English and Maths. English and maths are now compulsory for all learners aged 16-18 who do not have GCSE grade C or over in these subjects.
It is important to note that learners must attend and complete all elements of their Study Programme. This includes English and maths. This is a government requirement. Non-attendance at any part of the programme may result in the learner being asked to leave the college.
*Please note that this college does not offer A-levels.
