Course description

Students can progress onto our Post 16 courses, which offer a very vocational approach to learning. The majority of students go on to an apprenticeship, further education or employment within their chosen pathway.

These courses are non exam based but require students to complete course work and meet deadlines. Students are expected to work independently with support and guidance from their tutor and have a study centre which they will be time-tabled to work in during the two years.

At present we offer:

NVQ 3 in Construction

BTEC Level 3 in Health & Social Care

BTEC Level 3 in Hospitality & Catering


Clothes Show Live NEC

Snibston Discovery Centre

West Midlands Safari Park

Hereford Boarder Oak Company

Entry requirements
