Our Future Pathways programme is our Level 1 equivalent, designed for those who don’t have any GCSE results. This foundation programme will prepare you for entry onto a relevant Level 2 course. It is designed to help you focus on achieving your English and maths qualifications, develop your employability skills with a strong work experience requirement, give you the opportunity to try a number of technical skills and help you choose the right course to progress towards your goals. For the final term, from Easter up to the summer break, we will ask you to stay with the technical area that you want to progress to a Level 2 course in next year.
