What will I study?

Our Level 1 Introductory Award in Vocational Studies comprises a range of separate course units that can be used to create individual learning programmes, giving you the opportunity for both personal development and work experience.This exciting and challenging course helps you to build your self-confidence, whilst teaching you the required skills and understanding to progress to further vocational courses or employment within a wide variety of industries. Our Entry Level 3 Award is designed to be fully accessible to a wide range of learners of all abilities.

Working in small groups, you will complete a range of practical and creative tasks. This will help you to develop a ‘hands-on’ approach to your learning across a range of core practical and vocational skills in your chosen field, through real and simulated workplace situations.

Both courses are delivered within a safe and highly supportive learning environment, and incorporate a high level of hands-on, practical work and external trips, in order to complement and enhance your learning experience, here at Macclesfield College.
