You will practice these skills through a variety of "hands on" tasks such as running your own business event and setting up mobile shops. We have a new purpose built retail unit and you will be expected to contribute to the running of this.
You will also have the opportunity to develop skills within the community through fund raising events and volunteering opportunities.
Maths and English form part of every programme of study for students who have yet to secure a GCSE grade C or above, in these subjects.
This will enhance job and career opportunities, and where appropriate, progression to higher education. Students who undertake GCSE English or Maths will be required to purchase a revision guide and workbook (£5.00), and those undertaking Maths will also be required to purchase a scientific calculator (about £7.00).
These can be purchased from the college or from any good stationers.
