Our Level 1 & Essential Skills programmes comprises Entry Level and Level 1. These programmes generally have no specific entry criteria and provide a personalised and flexible approach to learning, so you can gain the skills and qualifications to allow you to progress to further study or employment.
Students will go out of the college on a regular basis, to enhance their learning and give them opportunities to practise the new skills they are learning.
