Level 1 Combined Diploma (Outdoor Learning) at Newton Rigg College
This course allows you to choose and explore an area that interests you the most and potentially may consider for future progress to higher levels or towards related employment. The course involves lectures, practical skills and site visits. Throughout the course you will build up a portfolio of evidence, while being assessed on a number of tasks completed with a range of different ways to capture achievement.
Three option areas*:
• Agriculture • Animal care • Health and Social Care
• Employability skills • Personal development • English and maths
*Optional areas available will be dependent on sufficient student numbers
These are practically oriented, vocational courses for those
with enthusiasm but little experience. You will spend as much
time as possible outside the classroom learning by doing. At
least half of your week at college will be spent engaging in
practical activities such as grooming animals, milking cows,
fencing and conservation projects, all of which will build your
skills for your future. You will also spend time each week
practising Functional Skills, English, Maths and ICT, along
with working on your employability skills.
No formal qualifications required but, an enthusiasm for one
or more of the subject areas is essential.
