    • English & Maths

      Being confident with maths and English is not only important for everyday life but it’s expected as standard in the world of work. We’re committed to ensuring our learners have the full range of skills that universities and employers are looking for. If you haven’t yet achieved grade 4 (grade C) in English and maths and are aged between 16-18 years, you will continue to study these by undertaking a GCSE re-sit programme or appropriate stepping stone qualifications in addition to your vocational learning programme.

    • DBS – Disclosure and Barring Service

      Due to the nature of this programme, it is assumed individuals will come into contact with children or vulnerable adults during their studies and within future employment. You will therefore be required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service check, known as a DBS. The DBS check will be completed during your programme enrolment and conducted under the strictest confidence. If the check comes back disclosing that criminal offences have been committed, the College will carry out a risk assessment to determine whether the offence disclosed may cause problems for you accessing the course and progressing into future employment. If this is the case, you will be advised about the implications and always offered advice and guidance. Not all offences are a risk, so the return of a DBS check may not impact on your choice. All DBS information is confidential and only those who need to know will be given the information.
