A LEVELS ENCOURAGE YOU TO START TO UNDERSTAND THE PHILOSOPHY OF LEARNING, TO DEVELOP YOUR TALENT AND DEEPEN YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF YOUR STRONGEST SUBJECTS.

We offer a comprehensive and flexible A Level programme that includes academic study support, as well as the opportunity to develop skills that are essential at Higher Education and in the workplace. You will undertake valuable professional development which will include work related learning, work shadowing and specialist university application support.

Our GCSE programme is a 1 year exam-based package.

You will be expected to study the ‘core’ elements of English, maths and science, adding further subjects according to your needs and ability from psychology, sociology, history and additional science.

The general programme is most suitable for students who have narrowly missed their GCSE C (or 4/5 grades) in some subjects and need these to progress. Students who have not had the opportunity to take GCSE qualifications for a range of reasons, including ESOL learners, will be able to take an aptitude assessment and have an interview to assess their suitability for this programme.

Adults preparing for an Access programme or other level 3 qualifications may also find this a useful stepping stone.

The Trafford College Apprenticeship Service, along with our friendly and helpful Careers and Guidance advisers, can help you search for a job as well as give you vital CV writing support, and will provide you with the skills needed to help you complete application forms and approach potential employers.
