Learners are also expected to complete either Essential Skills Wales, GCSE English & Maths and/or Digital Literacy depending upon their existing grades of Maths & English.

Learners will also be assigned a Progress Coach who will support them throughout their time on the programme and complete a PT programme with them. They will ensure that any ALN support is put in place before learners start and that any new support needs that may arise are incorporated into their programme to help them to succeed. The course is fully supported to meet individual needs and learning differences.

The programme is delivered over three days and will be a mixture of classroom & workshop.
Each learner will complete the WEST diagnostic assessments for literacy and numeracy. Students will work towards a range of units to help them achieve their qualification to support further progression into Further Education or Work-Based Learning.
