Study programme

Own your future: career-focused learning for 16-18-year olds
Designed around you

School can only take you so far. Next comes life. To give yourself the best chance of a fulfilling and successful career you need to keep learning. You know this! But, you don’t have to take the academic route to do so. You have options.

A Study Programme is designed around you, to fit your interests and put you on course for your next career step. Working together we identify a clear single aim for your time with us. These might include:

  • Discovering which future career you want to grow into
  • Aiming for an apprenticeship
  • Studying at university
  • Setting up a business.

It’s different for each individual

The programmes take into account what you've already studied and your future career aspirations. For example, if you haven't got GCSE English or Maths we'll build this in. We know that the school approach doesn't suit everyone, so we'll bring the learning to life by making it relevant to your chosen career path.

Life skills

The programmes are always enhanced with a range of activities and tutorials that our experience and research shows will benefit you. This might range from day trips to nutrition advice or planning how to rent your first flat. Life is bigger and more complicated than any qualification can prepare you for. You need to gain life skills and be able to balance opinions on the world, skills not on the curriculum.

Your future

What next? Good question. After a Study Programme you’ll be ready to take on a Traineeship, a 6-month work placement in your chosen sector – a real job, with real job responsibilities. Once you have a Study Programme and Traineeship under your belt you’ve ticked every box to prepare you to succeed as an apprentice.
