Courses Explained

Science at college in ScunthorpeAt John Leggott College we offer courses over a wide variety of levels and subject areas and choosing the correct one depends on each individual’s interests, career aim and the way they like to learn. Here is a brief overview of what each qualification means:

ACADEMIC COURSES e.g. A Levels

  • Excellent progression route to university
  • Students are motivated and tend to enjoy research and study
  • Mostly exam-based qualifications but some include coursework
  • Usually these are studied over two years with the 'AS' Level being taken at the end of year one and the 'A2' Level at the end of year two.

WHAT NEXT? Students who study academic qualifications tend to progress straight onto university but A Levels can also be used to access 18+ apprenticeships and employment

 

VOCATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS e.g. BTECs

  • Choose to study a subject linked to a particular vocational area
  • A mix of coursework, hands-on learning and work experience
  • Develop life skills like teamwork, problem-solving and creative thinking

WHAT NEXT? Progress onto higher level courses at College, an apprenticeship, university (if you study Level 3), or into employment within your chosen sector

 

LEVEL 3

A full Level 3 programme can consist of A Levels, Level 3 BTECs, or a combination of the two. The programme is tailored to suit each individual student and are best suited to those who have achieved a least five GCSEs at Grades A* - C.

LEVEL 2

A full Level 2 programme can consist of Level 2 BTECs and/or GCSEs. We understand that some students may need an extra year of Level 2 before progressing onto Level 3, and we can offer a combination of GCSEs and Level 2 BTECs to suit everyone. Some students may need to re-sit GCSE Maths or English, alongside a Level 3 programme, and this is also an option for students who may only be missing 1 of these crucial qualifications.

LEVEL 1/ENTRY LEVEL

Foundation Learning courses are also available for students who are not yet ready for Level 2 study, but would like to gain a set of Entry Level qualifications while meeting new people and building their confidence.
