Students need to be over 14 and have an interest in a practical subject to qualify for the course. No previous qualifications are required. The College provides learning support for Home Educated students who have learning difficulties and disabilities; the home institution must provide support for school students.

Students will be assessed through a range of theory and practical assessments and completion of a portfolio of evidence.
On completion of the course, it may be possible for year 10 students to ‘top’ up their qualification with further units. Students may wish to progress to another 14-16 or Further Education course dependent on their age.
