You will build your knowledge and skills in English and maths, in order to achieve level 2 GCSE qualifications in English and maths by the end of the course. You will be supported to develop positive attitudes and behaviours, with barriers around pastoral and personal development being addressed, to fully prepare you for a T Level course.

Additionally, you will develop industry relevant knowledge and skills for your chosen area in health, healthcare science and science.
