A study programme is more than a qualification; it includes all the ingredients to make you the best you can be, to give you an edge in the jobs market and the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to move into further study. It is personal to you and is made up of a range of activity. The majority of time will be spent on the qualification and will be a mix of practical work and theory, all shaped around the technical skills and knowledge that employers are looking for. The rest of your time will be spent in English and maths, work experience, tutorials and reviews along with a range of other activities designed to boost your CV in some way.
You'll be part of an employer engagement scheme where you will work with employers from local businesses to help improve your skills further. The possibilities with this scheme are endless. Past students have been given real-life projects to work on, visited the employers at work and been given opportunities to showcase their work. This scheme, along with our tutorial programme, will help you become work ready as well as preparing you for the outside world with training on money management, help with job hunting, interviews and confidence building.
We want you to be job ready when you leave us and able to put what you have learned into practice in the workplace. Relevant and high quality work experience placements, employer mentoring, commercial and vocational projects will help you to do this and are an important part of your study programme. Plus make an impression on an employer and who knows where that could lead!
