Entry requirementsThere are no formal entry requirements. You will have an interview and you will undertake some initial assessments in English and maths. You should be able to show you could benefit from the programme and be fully committed.
Students can enrol on to the programme at Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3 or Level 1. They may also be considered for a bespoke, personalised, non accredited programme. The programme is suitable for students who have no prior qualifications but, if you have already achieved some, you must show you can make progress and work towards the next level.
DurationAt least one year, but the programme is designed to meet individual needs and may be extended if progression is achievable and supports the student’s agreed outcomes (including those agreed in Education, Health and Care Plans).
