6+ Course

What’s it about?

The 6+ programme is a course which is designed to support some of our more vulnerable students to gain qualifications in English and maths, while studying a number of life skills subjects. Below is a list of the classes that most of the students will access, however it is a flexible programme that can enable students to access other subjects for enrichment e.g. Barbering, Construction, Professional Cookery.

Whilst it is primarily designed as a one year course, it may be possible to extend it for a further year if deemed appropriate.

The students will be supported and mentored throughout the course and working in small classes.
