Business Level 1 Foundation Pathway at Reading College
This pathway is for young people who want to explore a career in Business through a full-time college course and may need support with English, Maths and Personal Development. You will take part in practical activities and assessment is continuous rather than by exam. Our job coaches will support you to complete work experience as part of your course.
Vocational Certificate in Learning, employability and Progression.
This course will give you an introduction to Business and Enterprise and time to think about your future career. We arrange for support from our college Careers Advisers who are there to help you choose your next step. Your tutor will work with you to set individual learning targets each term and you will get feedback on your progress. You will be assessed through creating a folder of evidence and you will be assessed at a level that suits you. Functional Skills and GCSE Maths and English will be assessed through external examinations.
You do not need qualifications to join this pathway. However, you will need a successful interview with a member of the teaching team to show your commitment to full-time study and your interest in the subject. We will also expect a satisfactory school reference.
On successful completion of the course you may move on to full time Level 2 course, apprenticeship or employment.
