The student will then attend interviews to secure their placement mirroring a real life scenario. So in addition to the preparation during the soft skills modules, we help students to choose their placements in order to advance their chosen ambition. We are proud that due to the high quality of our students, over 90% are in full time employment within 6 months of completing the course – some remaining in their placements.
We are flexible on qualifications depending on experience but as a guideline you can apply if you have ONE of the following:
• 2 A Levels & 5 GCSEs (including English & Maths)
