How will I know how I am doing?
A variety of assessment methods will be used to measure progress from a learner's starting point and against their expected outcomes and target grades. These may include practical tasks and assessments, written assignments, performance reviews, presentations and discussions and exams. Progress will be discussed with tutors on the programme.
What do I need to join?
Learners will need to possess four GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including both English and Maths.
Maths & English
A key requirement for future progression and employment is a good understanding and application of knowledge and skills in both English and maths. Learners who are enrolled on this programme of study will be provided with opportunities to continue to use the skills they gained previously whilst achieving grade 4 in both English and Maths, and to apply their understanding to business scenarios.
At SGS, we aim to provide learners with the skills required to progress into further study and training or employment upon completion of their chosen programme of study. Key attributes required by employers are that individuals be enthusiastic, motivated, presentable (in some instances in company uniform), organised, articulate, able to think 'outside the box', business-like and enterprising, and that they have a 'can-do' attitude. At SGS, we work with you on all these areas throughout the duration of your programme of study, and your tutor(s) will provide feedback on progress made, as well as any areas for future development.
As part of their overall programme of study, learners are required to undertake a period of work placement related to the field of employment they wish to enter. Our Work Placement Team will assist learners in gaining a placement and ensure that opportunities to practice necessary skills required for a future career are available at college.
What can I do next?
Learners who successfully complete this programme will be eligible to progress onto Level 3, Year 2, at the end of which they will possess a qualification equivalent to three A-levels. Learners may wish to pursue a route into higher education, undertake further training and education or an apprenticeship, or alternatively gain employment in the industry.
