Foundation Learning promotes a wide range of skills to prepare students for future work or further specialist study.

The Vocational Studies programme supports personal development and lifelong learning while promoting independence and preparation for employment.

It is a flexible one year programme which can be extended to two years. Class sizes are small, and support is available during lessons, breaks and at lunchtime.

The programme includes:

  • Experiences of the pathways to employment in particular sectors, e.g. Hospitality & Catering or Creative Media.
  • A variety of vocational subjects offered by the College.
  • The opportunity to improve Maths and English.
  • The development of communication and team working skills through a rich programme of indoor/outdoor activity.

Vocational tasters and work-based opportunities are an integral part of this programme. Learners develop their English and Maths skills as well as a range of other skills that will stand them in good stead for accessing the College learning environment in the future.
