14-16 Skills Programme
This provides young people with the opportunity to do a practical taster course at College whilst still at school. You can choose from animal care, landscaping, public services, equine, sport or recreation. Courses are taken alongside GCSEs.
If school isn’t for you, or if you excel in a subject and can’t wait to find out more, then you may in exceptional circumstances be able to do a College course instead. The course content will vary depending on the course you choose.
