A new programme being introduced at Dearne Valley College (DVC) is ideal for anyone undecided about which subject they want to study.

FLEX aims to give new students the skills to find a job, become an Apprentice or get back into Further Education.

The one year, full-time course will give students the opportunity to gain new qualifications, practise interview techniques and improve English, Maths and ICT skills.

A vocational timetable could include an introduction to a broad range of subjects such as childcare, health and social care, hair and beauty, engineering, hospitality, construction, sport, travel and tourism, horticulture, business and a range of other subjects.

Kim Shaw, Head of 14-19 commented:
“Students will study the Vocational Studies programme as well as Maths, English or ICT. The emphasis is upon helping you access the career of your choice, with practical ‘hands on’ tasters. We want to you to develop work ready skills, through employability projects and work experience. The Flex programme gives youngsters the opportunity to have a timetable which meets their needs and abilities”.

Entry requirements onto the programme are candidates who have no GCSEs or mainly grades G-E. Students are assessed through coursework, so no exams. Moving on after the FLEX programme, students can progress on to a Level 2 programme in the curriculum of their choice.

Dearne Valley College are now accepting applications for many vocational courses.
