One of the very few acknowledged as Outstanding by Ofsted and we have some of the best success rates in the country. We aim to progress every successful candidate on to further education, which could include an apprenticeship, BTEC or even higher education. This prospectus gives an overview on the vocational courses we offer in areas such as Care & Early Years, Construction, Engineering & Automotive, Hairdressing and Sport & Leisure. It also includes a few of our frequently asked questions, but should you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to contact us. Alternatively we also offer an open door policy where you can pop in for a chat and a guided tour of our facilities at any time. What is a vocational course? A vocational course is a full or part time course which can be taken while you re still at school. The training is focused around practical subjects and takes place predominantly in a simulated environment. It teaches you a range of skills by blending practical skills with sector specific knowledge, which allows you the opportunity to progress on to work-based options such as apprenticeships, BTECs and higher education. Our vocational courses are a great way to start your career and provide endless opportunities for future progression. They give you the necessary combination of theory and practice that a solely academic route just can t provide and support you to find the right path. Mark Boulting, Skills Group Managing Director Designed by Sigma Marketing & Advertising Ltd 2 3

You can expect to take part in story-telling, indoor and outdoor play activities to observe how children interact and develop social activities. You will gain knowledge and understanding of how your practice as a Child Care student is underpinned by the Early Years Foundation Stage; this sets the statutory standards that must be met by providers of child care. You will also learn how to meet the different cultural needs of children from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, and ensure that your practice promotes inclusion and equality of opportunity for all children in your care.
