Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Summary

Kickstart your studies into Animal Care by enrolling onto our brand new L1 Pathways course! Choose your specific pathway in Animal Care and spend time undertaking foundation learning towards your vocational path by studying units such as Caring For and Feeding Animals, Moving and Accommodating Animals and Maintain the Health of Animals. Study essential English, Maths and Employability skills alongside your pathway to ensure you have the best opportunity of progressing into your desired sector.

This course is based at our Filton campus, located in South Gloucestershire which is easily accessible from the city of Bristol by train (Bristol Parkway / Bristol Abbey Wood) and bus.

What do I need to join?

As well as having a keen interest in your pathway and a willingness to learn, learners must possess GCSE grades 2 or 3 in both English and Maths, or achieved at least an Entry level 3 in Functional Skills English and Maths.

How will I learn?

You will undertake a L1 BTEC qualification in Land Based Studies. A range of teaching methods will be used in the classroom, including: writing, reading, researching, presentations, discussions and case studies. You will go to your Pathway department one day a week and undertake your vocational units with specialised teaching staff from that area. You will complete summative assignments and receive feedback and grades from your teachers throughout.

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 Functional Skills and/or GCSE English and Maths to progress towards gaining grade 4s in both subjects.

Employability

We aim to provide you with the core skills required to progress into further study, training or employment upon completion of your study programme. 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.

Work Experience

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 the Pathways course will be eligible for progression onto a Level 2 programme in that pathway, GCSE Plus or an apprenticeship in a related discipline.
