Study Programmes at Derwen College

Course description

In September 2013 Study Programmes were introduced for students in Further Education.

Course content

For students at Derwen College, Study Programmes are personalised programmes of learning which help to increase their skills for employment and independent living, and are delivered via the student’s chosen learning area at Derwen College.

Study Programmes consist of three key parts, the weighting of each part depends on the individual need of the student, and provides them with a personalised programme:

  • Development of vocationally specific work skills with accreditation where appropriate
  • Programme of work experience
  • Development of English and maths / functional skills

Whilst building on existing skills, Study Programmes will stretch and challenge students to allow them to progress towards their intended outcomes. Their personalised Study Programme will provide work experience opportunities as well as working on the basics such as English, maths and working with others to increase their confidence and employability.
