10 Something to shout about! Horticulture students are Young Gardeners of the Year 2015! Writtle College won Best in Show in the Young Gardeners of the Year competition at the Ideal Home Show! Celebrity horticulturist Alan Titchmarsh, one of the judges, said he was proud to be Writtle College patron while competition organiser and TV gardener David Domoney described the garden as beautiful and said the accolade was well-deserved. The College s team of nine students eight of whom were studying FE courses had to design and build a show-stopping sustainable garden in a 5.5m x 4m plot in the heart of London Olympia. FE Lecturers in Horticulture Ben Wincott and Simon Watkins, who have created numerous RHS Chelsea Flower Show gardens, provided guidance. Simon said: I am absolutely over the moon for the students! They have put in so much effort. All the hard work has paid off! This is so good for their CVs. Ben added: The quality of this year s garden is exceptional - it is really great to hear the feedback from the judges. This has got to be one of the highlights of my career and to see the team on stage celebrating was a personal high! One of the students Francesca Le Maistre Banham added: I am speechless! When I started the course at Writtle College I could only hope that we would be sitting here at the Ideal Home Show with a gold medal and Best in Show with these grins on our faces! It s the highlight of my College experience so far! 10

14 Qualifications explained Writtle College offers a range of vocational qualifications; the most common are described below. 14 1/2/3 Work-based qualifications These are practical qualifications which are competence-based. This means you learn from practical, work-related tasks designed to help you develop the skills and knowledge to do a job effectively. 1 Award/Certificate/ Diploma These are generally one-year courses, providing a practical introduction to a subject area. 2 Award/Certificate/ Diploma These 2 courses are generally one year and combine the theoretical and practical aspects of the subject area. 3 Subsidiary Diploma/ Diploma/ Extended Diploma These 3 qualifications focus on a vocational area or occupation, making them an excellent alternative to AS or A s. They are designed to provide you with the theoretical and technical skills required to work in a particular industry. These qualifications could enable progression to a Higher Education (degree) level of study. English and Maths Courses at Writtle College give you the chance to develop your Maths and English skills through a range of methods including qualifications such as Functional Skills and GCSEs. If you are aged 16 to 18 and have not yet achieved a GCSE grade A* to C in English and/or Maths, you will need to study these during your time at Writtle College, either through Functional Skills or GCSE. Full details can be found in the College s English and Maths Policy. Please see page 16 for more details on English and Maths. Part-time study In many cases, it is possible to study full-time courses on a part-time basis. For further information please contact: Admissions Tel: More information about the different types of qualifications can be found on the gov.uk website: find-course

15 Qualifications Opportunities Many programmes can be studied on a full-time or part-time basis Generally, you can move from one qualification type to another e.g. 1 Certificate to 2 Apprenticeship You can usually move from one subject area to another e.g. Horticulture to Agriculture or Animal Studies to Equine #FE PresentationDay 4-8 Certificates of Higher Education Diploma of Higher Education/ Foundation Degree Honours Degree Higher Apprenticeship Postgraduate e.g. Masters/PhD 3 GCE A s e.g. Science, Maths, English 3 Award/Certificate/ Diploma Advanced Apprenticeship 3 Award/Certificate/ Diploma in Work-based Employment with training e.g. First Aid, Tractor Driving, Manual Handling, Photography 2 GCSEs grades A*-C, including Maths, English, Science 2 Award/Certificate/ Diploma Intermediate Apprenticeship 2 Award/Certificate/ Diploma in Work-based 1 GCSEs grades D-G, including Maths, English, Science 1 Award/Certificate/ Diploma Experiential Learning e.g. work experience, family business etc. 1 Award/Certificate/ Diploma in Work-based 15

16 English and Maths Good English and Maths skills will be a huge help to you when looking for jobs. Employers are always looking for these attributes and often use English and Maths qualifications to pick people for interview when selecting new staff. With a good level of English and Maths, you are more likely to find employment, earn more and progress in education and at work. Remember, you are not alone if you do not gain GCSEs at A* - C in English and Maths. Around four out of 10 teenagers face the same situation and often a fresh start at College helps. If you are 16 to 19-years-old and in this position, you will re-take your English and Maths qualifications through Functional Skills or GCSEs with us, alongside your new College course. If you are over 19 years of age, you will be encouraged to do the same. If you already have a grade C or above in GCSE English and Maths, you will continue to develop your skills during your classroom sessions and assessments. 16 Asa Peach 3 Sport Being able to re-take my GCSEs at Writtle College meant that I was able to go on to Higher Education, which improves the job opportunities open to me. Kara Hensher-Wombwell 2 Animal Care Being able to re-take my 2 English and Maths at Writtle means that I am able to go on to study Veterinary Nursing, which has always been my dream. Paul Downer Managing Director, Oak View Landscapes Good English and Maths grades are fundamental to young people s employment prospects as these are skills that are extremely important to businesses. Therefore, ensuring that all young people leave education with good GCSEs in English and Maths is a high priority for employers. Julia Smith College Governor College is a second chance to gain decent GCSE grades in Maths and English. You will earn, on average, 5,000 per year more with a C grade Maths than without it - learn it then earn it.

21 Agriculture, Countryside and Environment We have more than 250 farm animals on-site that you could work with on your course! It s a fact! Agriculture Agriculture provides a wide range of exciting job opportunities because it is such a diverse industry. The focus on farming is mainly on food production. The main farm types are dairy, beef, pigs, sheep, poultry, vegetables, cereals, root crops and other cash crops. The industry is also involved in non-food production for industrial development such as flax, hemp and biofuels. The Agriculture courses will give you the opportunity to pursue an interest in livestock, crop production or mechanisation. You can focus on general farm management as a career choice, but there are usually opportunities for unit managers and hands-on workers such as tractor drivers, dairymen, shepherds and sprayer operators. Other related careers include sales and marketing, agricultural consultants, agricultural researchers, journalists and teachers/lecturers. Around 135 hectares of the College estate are devoted to farming and production. The presence of these commercial enterprises makes a vital contribution to the teaching of production or mechanisation.

You will undertake practical management to enhance habitats for target species and learn about the laws that protect them. These practical tasks will be backed up through classroom theory. Many wildlife sites use livestock and machinery to manage them and, depending on your course selection, you will learn how to handle cattle or how to drive a tractor. Many rural sites are important for game management and the 2 Diploma in Game and Wildlife provides an introduction to this countryside activity. The estate offers hedgerows, grassland, rivers, woodland and farmland habitats for you to explore; these host such species as kingfishers, sparrowhawks, badgers, bullfinches, smooth newts, emperor dragonflies and water shrews. Additional qualifications During the course you will continue to develop your Maths and English skills through a range of methods such as Functional Skills and GCSEs. Additional qualifications specifically related to a subject area might also be included within a course.
