This course develops an understanding of the knowledge and skills required to run an Enterprise Project, which will be undertaken for a week towards the end of the course. You will develop confidence and self-esteem, as well as improve on your assertiveness, decision-making, interpersonal, presentation and teamwork skills – all the important skills required for life and the world of work.
What do I need to join?
As well as having a positive attitude and a willingness to learn, learners will ideally possess GCSE grades 1 or 2 in both English and Maths.
How will I know how I am doing?
A range of teaching methods will be used in the classroom, including: writing, reading, researching, presentations, discussions and producing vlogs. You will also run an Enterprise Project outside of the classroom at a location your group chooses.
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 course will also, as part of their overall programme of study, be enrolled on GCSE English and Maths in order to progress towards gaining GCSE grade 4 in both subjects.
We aim to provide you with the skills required to be able to progress into further study and training or employment upon completion of your 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. We work 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 areas for development.
As part of your 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 learners in gaining a placement and ensure that you are on track to achieve, whilst liaising with your course tutors to ensure that the opportunity to practice necessary employability skills is available at college.
What can I do next?
Learners who successfully complete may be eligible for progression onto a Level 2 or 3 programme of study, or an apprenticeship in a related discipline.Apply for this course
