Adults Day and Evening Courses
Our courses for adults are designed to meet the needs and interests of a range of people with varying levels of knowledge and ability.
Enriching Your Talents!
On these courses you can learn a new skill, broaden your talents or enjoy a relaxing leisure interest. Whether it’s learning a language, using IT, enjoying the creative or performing arts, or learning to market your own business, you should find a course that suits you.
Our Enriching Your Talents! courses are supported by Somerset Skills and Learning; they do not lead to a formal qualification.
Gaining a qualification
We also offer courses where you can study for a qualification, including academic qualifications such as a GCSE or A Level, and vocational, work related qualifications such as Diplomas. We also offer Higher Education qualifications. All of our qualifications are accredited by leading professional bodies or nationally recognised awarding organisations. Our higher level Degrees are accredited by Plymouth University.
All qualification-based courses are categorised into levels; they progress from Entry Level to Level 6. Some Enriching Your Talents! courses also have levels, but they do not lead to formal qualifications.
When you apply to join a course we will discuss your prior qualifications and their level to make sure you are eligible for the course you have chosen and we will also check what fees you will need to pay.
English and Maths
We teach GCSE English and Maths (level 2) and we also offer Functional Skills qualifications for adults who want to develop the skills they need for everyday life, such as reading, writing and maths. These qualifications can also boost your CV or help you move on to further study. We also offer English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) (Entry level to level 2). Please see a list of our English and Maths courses.
A Levels and vocational qualifications
In addition to the courses for adults listed in this brochure you can also apply to study the courses we provide for school leavers aged 16-18. We offer 40 A Level subjects (level 3) and over 30 vocational qualifications (level 1 - 3). You can find more information about these courses here or in our prospectus for school leavers, but you will need to contact our Admissions team to discuss the possibility of joining these courses.
We offer a range of industry focussed higher education courses including university level Foundation degrees, a BA (Honours) top up degree, HNDs and HNC. We also offer pre-degree courses for those who would like to study at a higher level in the future and higher level professional qualifications.
We constantly monitor the quality of our provision and in 2012 we received the highest possible rating for our higher education courses from the Quality Assurance Agency.
