Course Requirements

Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements although a commitment to learning is a must. You will need to attend an interview and an initial assessment to ensure that this is the right course for you.

How Is It Assessed

Assessment is accredited for English and maths whereby you will complete a Stepping Stone City and Guilds Award. The remainder of assessment is through target setting and review of the development of your skills, through a personalised programme designed to meet your individual needs in order to support your progression.

How Is It Taught

The course is taught by an experienced and well-qualified lecturer in a small group setting. The learning will take place in our Cauldon campus. Learning is designed to help you to develop your skills through a range of activities such as travel training, cooking, independent living to support your progression. You will have the opportunity to take part in mini enterprise projects to help to develop your skills around money management, problem solving and team work.

What Could I do Next

Support is provided to identify progression pathways that are appropriate to the individual. Progression may be within the Foundation Department through our Routes to Progression and Routes to Employment pathways, or you may progress onto a vocational programme.

What Else Do I Need To Know

All of the Prep 4 courses are smaller sized classes to allow more individual support that nurtures and develops learners and their learning. As the course progresses throughout the year, more independence and autonomy is encouraged.
