This programme is designed for young learners who are working at a too high level for a route 2 or steps programme but need a transition year between vocational courses.
This is an ideal transition year between level 2 and 3, providing confidence and essential skills to prepare them for the next level. While completing this programme, learners will develop the knowledge, understanding and essential skills employers look for in employees. These range from familiar ‘key skills’ such as team working, independent learning and problem solving, to more tricky-to-measure skills such as:
– an appreciation for appropriate behaviour and dress
– appropriate interpersonal skills
– communicating with professional colleagues/peers and/or hierarchical seniors
– supporting other aspiring employee’s personal manners and department
– understanding work practices and how different roles and departments function within an organisation.
Learners will also study English and Maths that they have not already gained to progress onto a Level 3 qualification. Study skills and academic writing will also be part of the programme
You will study a range of topics alongside English and Maths if you don’t have them including:
· Team Working
· Problem Solving
Employability skills and behaviours
Learn from industry experience and well qualified vocational tutors
Take part in cross college events
Hear from a range of guest speakers

“I feel much more supported and have opened up more here. I get involved in sports now, as they adapt the activities to enable me to join in. I just love it here; we have a great laugh.”Jacob Hunter FLEX student
