This course has been designed specifically for mature students who do not have the relevant qualifications for entry to higher education.
Students will attend college four days a week between 9.30am and 3.30 in the afternoon. Candidates will be assigned a personal tutor who will support studies and personal development.
Good time-management skills are necessary as assessment of the course is on an on-going basis.
The curriculum is structured. Core units are delivered together with the cohorts of the other Access courses at BCoT. The specialist social work and sociology units are delivered to the social work students separately. There are weekly tutorials where one-to-ones take place and learners set their own targets for the development of specific skills and knowledge. This includes completion of the UCAS process. All resources, assignments are available on the Google Classrooms for your use and specific resources for eLearning sessions are updated weekly.
This course includes the following units:
Entrants should have a minimum of GCSE English and Maths at grade C or above. Students will be invited for an advice and guidance interview with the tutor.
If you do not meet the entry requirements, consider enrolling on our Pre-Access to Higher Education course and the IGCSE English Language.
This course is assessed in a variety of ways including presentations, discussions, tests, projects, practical work, problem solving exercises, essays, scientific reports and diagrams.
This course would be appropriate for those who wish to study Social Work, or a similar degree, at University. We advise checking with the Admissions Tutor for specific degree programmes.
