Both our Level 3 part time Pathfinder and Level 4 Pathway to Employment courses are divided into semesters or terms so that a student can join with the option to complete 3-4 minor awards per term or they can stay for the whole programme and complete a major award.
Phone the centre to make an appointment with a member of staff to talk about the programmes, your needs and queries.
Do a taster of the course that you feel most interested in. A taster is where you would come for an agreed number of days and follow the timetable of classes, just like the students, to see if you feel we are a good fit.
After the taster days, if you feel like joining a course, you complete the
application process with a member of staff. Students can join either course
for up to a month after a term starts, if you have an interest in the
programmes at any point during the year, it is worth phoning to make an
appointment to hear more, you don’t need to wait, we say strike while
the iron is hot.
