English & Maths

Kick Start

Start Date: Between 01/08/2023 and 31/07/2
Site: College Main Site


Course Overview

Our Kickstart programmes are designed for learners who are aged 16-18, to offer an opportunity for you to engage with learning, especially if you have found attending college on a full-time study programme challenging. These courses are aimed at giving you the opportunity to build on your skills, knowledge and confidence and enable you to progress into a more mainstream study programme, either in the same year or next. In addition to working on your English and maths, you can choose to spend part of your college day studying in one of our curriculum areas, such as Automotive, Construction, Health, Early Years, Hair and Beauty, Sport or Uniformed Public Services depending on availability and your future career aspirations. We are accepting applications for this programme throughout the year. Please apply via the apply button.
