What opportunities will this course give me?

This programme is multi-skilled, focusing on individual and group enterprise and is designed to assist, empower and support successful progression for those who have not achieved their full potential. Successful completion can result in further study on any suitable Level 1 or Level 2 Programme at the College.

What will I be learning?

Enterprise Skills Level 1 is a full-time course which runs for 3 days per week. It is a modular vocationally orientated programme offering BTEC WorkSkills at Level 1 and an opportunity to develop maths and English skills, as appropriate, in addition to undertaking a range of vocational activities, volunteering and work experience while exploring social enterprise activities to develop a work ready ethos. There may be a requirement to undertake occasional Saturday markets to support learning.

All learners who have not achieved a GCSE A*-C or 9-4 grade for Maths or English will be required to engage with an appropriate maths or English programme until the GCSE Grade C (4) or equivalent has been achieved.

Why is this course for me?

You will learn and continually develop your skills through a mixture of tutor led sessions, demonstrations supported by individual research and group work, set time critical assignments and practical tasks that will develop the skills required for further vocational study or transition to the workplace.

What do I need to sign up?

You will be working confidently at Entry Level 3 and will have already achieved qualifications in Literacy and/or Numeracy at this level. In addition, you will need to successfully complete an interview with a member of the course team and be ready and motivated to progress towards Level 1 study or be offered an internal transition progression to the programme.

Is there anything else I need to know?

Enterprise Skills Level 1 is a multi-skilled, full-time course designed to assist, empower and support successful progression for 16 - 18-year olds undertaking full-time studies within the College.

This course is suitable for students:

• Who have not met the entry requirement for their chosen vocational progression
• Who are unsure of their future career path
• Have attended full-time courses but have found it difficult to maintain the pace
• Who have completed the KickStart programme and have been offered a progression transition

Group sizes for the Enterprise cohorts are set at 14 -18 and will be supported by a tutor and appropriate learning support.

The programme is flexible and varied to maintain student engagement with learning delivered in bite sized sessions. This course will include individual research task alongside syndicate team activities supported by self-study periods where students will undertake set modules or use the time for smaller projects or catch up with tutor support.

This programme is specifically run with the intention of including a number of weekend market days which students must attend to promote their individual project items.

To enable the safety of the students, it may be necessary to purchase appropriate clothing or footwear for use in the workshop or any other off-site work experience.
