14-16 programmes & course information
Are you at school?
Wiltshire College has a great new range of options for students aged 14 to 16.
Wiltshire College offers two types of 14-16 programmes depending upon your individual circumstances and needs: Vocational Options and Access to Further Education.
Vocational Options are 1-year and 2-year programmes leading to nationally recognised qualifications in one vocational area. These programmes are suitable for you if you are able to show a strong interest in a chosen subject. You need to be able to cope with both theory and activity based classes and maintain a minimum 90% attendance.
The College's Vocational Options offer includes Level 1 qualifications in:
- Hair and Beauty
- Motor Vehicle
Please discuss with your school in the first instance if these subject areas are of interest to you so they can make contact with the School Partnerships team.
Access to Further Education
The Access to Further Education course offers individual programmes which let you participate in a range of vocational options. It maybe that a school placement is no longer appropriate. You will normally be referred to this provision by the school which has been most recently attended or other specialist referral agency.
The aim of this provision is to re-engage you with learning and to provide a positive learning experience in preparation for the transition to further education or employment.
