Study Programme Foundation Gateway (Entry 1 and Entry 2)

B&FC

Course Entry Requirements

The Gateway Foundation course is designed to help 16-24 year old learners (with statement S139a, LDD statement or EHC Plan) who have no prior qualifications or have GCSE at Grades D and below. This course at Foundation level is a fantastic transition into College and has all the support that a young person needs to make their experience at College as close to what they were used to at School as possible. There is a Transition Team which will help with the transition from School to College. They will attend your review, arrange taster sessions and a guided tour of your College campus.

This course will support you to build your grades up and to carve a pathway to higher level course. This course will lead you on to a Level 1 course (where applicable) and will give you a better grade in your maths and English than you currently hold.

We have a very holistic approach to teaching and learning and we embed employability and social development skills throughout the course so that you are better equipped not only for Further Education but also for employment. The other possible routes are into- Traineeship, Supported Internship and Apprenticeship.
