This course package is best suited to academically gifted students who are looking to challenge themselves in further education.

For this reason, we ask for a minimum of 5 GCSEs at grades 9 - 6 (A* - B) including English, maths and combined science. If your timetable permits, there is the opportunity to complete two A Levels alongside your vocational course, and this can be discussed with you during your initial interview and again at enrolment.
