Learning and assessment
All units will be formally assessed using the BTEC criteria. They will also be fully internally verified and submitted for external verification where necessary.
Progression will be to either the Level 2 in Public Services in particular or any other relevant Level 2 programme if appropriate e.g. Sport.
Alternatively, students could consider a Supported Internship that focuses heavily on work experience and a relevant placement.
The skills gained will demonstrate to any employer that the applicant will understand key work elements such as self-discipline, being organised and working as part of a team, therefore, this will allow the students to apply for any career and not just Public Services.
All students will gain relevant work experience both internally at the College and externally working in the Public Services sector.
