Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The standard entry requirements for a Level 2 course are 4 GCSEs at grades 3/D or above including English and maths, or a Level 1 qualification plus maths and English GCSE at 3 or functional skills.

We will review each application on a case-by-case basis to ensure you get a place on the course most suitable for you.

One of the ways we do this is through a very effective ‘6 weeks to success programme’ that operates from the first day you start your course. This includes support such as (but not limited to) :

  • Allowing you to change courses if you change your mind in the first 6 weeks – subject to course availability
  • Moving you between course levels if you are finding your current level too easy / too hard – subject to course availability
  • Enrolling you on GCSE maths and English if you have not passed with a grade 4
  • One-to-one reviews with your academic tutor to ensure you are progressing and achieving well

You will need to pass your Level 2, and GCSE maths and English to progress on to a Level 3 course.
