Additional Info

To progress on this course, and to go further in training or at work, it’s essential to have good Maths and English alongside vocational expertise. We encourage all applicants to work to achieve at least C grade GCSE English and Maths before leaving school, if at all possible. However, if you have not achieved a GCSE in Maths and/or English (grades A*-C) at the start of your course you will continue to study these subjects as a compulsory part of your programme. If you are not ready to retake your GCSE, you will study these subjects as Functional Skills. Functional Skills put English and Maths in their everyday context and develop your skills in the areas used by everyone to function in modern life and at work. They are also a compulsory part of apprenticeships in all trades. You will be expected to retake your English and/or Maths GCSEs within your first year of study.
