What does the FOUNDATION Programme involve?
Students will study 3 level 2 subjects (including English and/or maths as required) alongside academic study skills, pastoral, enrichment and employability programmes and the end of year step-up programme. This range of programmes is designed to prepare you effectively for the step up to level 3 study ensuring you are best placed to gain the most from your time at college before progressing to either university, into an apprenticeship or employment.
*we will provide guidance about the most suitable options depending on your entry grades and intended progression. If you already have either GCSE maths or English you will need to choose two subjects, otherwise it will normally just be one.
1. Study either GCSE English Language or Maths or both, if you haven’t got a grade 4 yet.
2. Add one or two of the options in the blue boxes above which are equivalent to one GCSE.
Details of all of these courses can be found on our website in the courses section.
