Course Levels

You can find out more about course levels here, or click on the levels below for a short overview.

Level 3 qualifications are valuable and recognised qualifications, equivalent to three A Levels. They are taught over a two year period at Yeovil College.

Level 2 qualifications are one year programmes, designed to give students additional time to achieve their GCSE English and/or Maths. Students will naturally progress to a Level 3 qualification, into employment or onto an Apprenticeship.

Level 1/Year 1 qualifications are designed to provide core skills which enable students to progress to the next, often more technical stage, in trades such as Construction and Engineering where high levels of work experience and practical exposure feature within the qualification. Students will use Level 1 qualifications as a basis for progression through the levels to achieve technical competency, or to an apprenticeship.
