Students will attend taught sessions where they will complete both written and practical work to develop their knowledge and skills. Students will keep a portfolio of practical work and a diary of work experience and employer engagement (trips and guest speakers) which will be assessed as part of their work experience unit. The course will be assessed by a small portfolio of assessments completed during independent study and a large synoptic assessment that will be completed under exam conditions from class notes. There will also be exams that cover some units and these will be sat during the year under exam conditions.
Students can progress onto one of our many Higher Education courses or directly into employment.
In addition to standard College equipment, students will need steel toe-capped boots, waterproof clothing, black cargo trousers and a Hadlow College jacket and t-shirt.
