Summary

This Level 3, one-year, one A-level-equivalent course is designed to provide learners with the underpinning knowledge required to progress into further training, an apprenticeship or employment within the industry. Units studied include: programming, IT systems, creating systems to store information, social media, data modelling and website development.

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 elected 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 your tutor and other delivery staff 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 will be provided with opportunities to use the skills gained through achieving GCSE grade 4 in English and Maths prior to joining.

Employability

At SGS, we aim to provide learners with the skills required to progress into further study and training or employment upon completion. 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 discuss progress and any areas for development.

Work Experience

As part of their overall programme of study, learners will be required to undertake a period of work placement related to the field of employment they wish to enter. Our Work Placement Team will assist in gaining a placement and ensure they are on track to successfully achieve, whilst liaising with course tutors to ensure that opportunities to practice and develop employability skills are available at college.

What can I do next?

Learners who successfully complete this programme of study will be eligible to progress onto the Level 3, Year 2 qualification, at the end of which learners will possess a qualification equivalent to three A-levels. Learners may wish to progress into higher education, gain an apprenticeship, undertake further training and development or secure employment within the industry.
