What do I need to join?
Students need to have passed GCSEs in English and Maths at grade 4/C or above, plus at least 2 A levels (or equivalent). We will also require a strong portfolio to be brought to interview.
Maths & English
A key requirement for obtaining many jobs is to achieve a good standard of English and Maths. Therefore, learners that do not yet have a GCSE grade 4 (C) will be enrolled on either a GCSE or functional skills programme alongside their course.
A key component of all Programmes is that learners will undertake a Work Placement. This is crucial as it allows learners to prctice new knowledge, skills and behaviours in an employment setting. Learners will receive help in securing their Work Placement through our Work Placement Team here at SGS, who will work with employers to ensure that all relevant Health & Safety, relevant insurances and safeguarding measures are in place.
What can I do next?
Learners can progress into higher education, apprenticeships and internships within the creative industries.
