Further and Higher Education Programmes

Seperator

Overview of the Courses

Further and Higher Education programmes are knowledge qualifications (academic programmes) which we run as part of our apprenticeship provision but also as stand-alone qualifications.

These are classroom based programmes delivered from our site at Barnwood Point, Gloucester and run on a one day per week basis.The timings of the programmes will vary depending on the course you are undertaking.

Assessment will take form of either a series of assignments and/or exams, again depending on the programme you are undertaking.

We currently offer knowledge qualifications at level 3 (Further Education) and level 4 & 5 (Higher Education). We are currently working on the development of level 6 (Degree) programmes which we hope to be in a position to offer from September 2019.
