Advice Session Information

This exciting full-time programme offers compulsory education to students in Year 11. Attendance is full-time and matches the pattern of the school year. Students are offered a mixture of formal and informal education in a variety of settings. Students have the opportunity where appropriate, to access specific vocational training and extended work-based learning. In addition, students study Functional Skills in English and maths as part of your main programme. Programmes are tailored to suit individual needs and provide pathways to further study, Apprenticeships and employment.

All applicants to the programme must have the approval of the Local Education Authority (information and guidance on this procedure must be sought from the Area Education Office) or from schools.

All learners will complete an initial six week short programme from September to half-term. Successful completion of a short programme secures progression to the main New Approach programme. This course is a Study Programme, which includes Functional Skills, WorkSkills and activity based learning and enrichment.
