Do you struggle with English and Maths?

Do you need a bit more support to help you reach your goals?

Do you need to improve your confidence?

Is English your second language?

Do you need somewhere to start from?

Then Foundation courses may be for you. Our courses can help you develop the right skills for a better future.

ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) courses allow you to develop listening, reading and writing skills and can support you to progress onto practical programmes. 

For 16-25 year olds, the Prince’s Trust Team offers an exciting  programme of activities to give you direction and help you make choices about your future. The majority of our learners progress on to a positive outcome i.e. further study, work, an Apprenticeship or voluntary work.

These courses are for young people who:

Are leaving school with few or no GCSE qualifications

Are not certain of what vocational area to move into

Need a bit more support with English and Maths

Need to develop their confidence and other social skills

Need more 1-2-1 support and steadier progression

These courses are called Preparation for Vocation (Prep 4) and we offer a range of year-long Prep 4 courses that prepare you for progressing onto a vocational programme. You can choose from a range of vocational areas including catering, health & social care, ICT, motor vehicle, construction, hair and beauty and creative arts. As part of the course you will also work on employability skills, English, Maths and ICT. Courses are available at a range of levels from Entry Level to Level 1 and once you have been for an informal interview and assessment, we will make sure that you are put on the right course for you. Once you have completed this course, you will be able to progress onto higher level courses or into employment.


  • Our Foundation courses help hundreds of students of every year to get the skills they need to progress to higher level courses at college and into work.

The College has really helped me get to where I want to be and their support throughout has been fantastic.

Going to university is a dream come true."
