This Foundation Year Access to Higher Education Course aims to provide the skills and confidence for learners to progress onto an Access to Higher Education Course and then in the future, to a degree or equivalent higher education course.
On successful completion of the course, learners will gain a Level 2 Diploma (60 credits at Level 2)
The course is aimed at adults of all ages, 16 and above and particularly suitable for those who have no formal qualifications and who are interested in work or further study in Health & Social Care. It will provide a foundation for achieving the skills and qualifications employers are looking for and will help develop the skills needed for academic study.
There are no formal entry requirements but candidates need to have a caring nature, and a mature and committed approach to their studies.
We aim to start this course at the end of January 2017. Students will be expected to attend for an average of up to 4 days a week, for 35 weeks, (over 3 terms), during 2017/18
Learners will undertake Skills for Further Study Level 2 Diploma and the main focus of the course is to develop learners' proficiency in a range of academic skills, including writing, research, numeracy and confidence in using computer applications.
Subjects covered will focus on a range of themes around health care, IT and media skills, communication skills, personal reflection, welsh culture, Pre/GCSE English & Maths and other options.
