Entry requirements

Before enrolment, all students must attend a minimum of one welcome day where they will be assessed by a tutor.

The Level 1 qualification ideally requires a minimum of 4 GCSEs, including English and maths, at grade 2 or above. Any students who do not have, or are not predicted, the required 4 GCSEs will be interviewed by both curriculum staff and Student Services.

All L1 students who do not have 4 GCSEs at grade 2 or above, including maths and English, will automatically be placed on a L1 Extended Certificate.

Students will be assessed in the first 6 weeks of the course and their programme could change depending on their ability.

All late starters who cannot attend a welcome day will be interviewed, regardless of their GCSE predicted grades or results, by both vocational and Student Services staff.

To speak with an adviser, please call 0113 222 6002.
