North Devon Campus
Starts 17th September 2018 - 5 Months
Do you have ambitions to go to university or take your career to the next level? Or perhaps you have a new career in mind? Is it a while since you’ve done any studying? Are you concerned that a lack of formal qualifications may hold you back?
If you’ve answered yes to one of these questions then you should seriously consider joining our Access to Access (A2A) course.
Running on one day a week from January until June, this programme is specifically designed to support you in continuing onto one of our Level 3 Access courses which provide an entry onto a university degree programme which you would be able to study either at Petroc or another higher education institution.
This programme will enable you to develop a whole range of study skills including time management, writing skills, working in groups and IT skills, alongside which you will be able to take a fast track English GCSE which will take up to 17 weeks, brush up your maths skills and take part in tasters to help prepare you for your next step.
There will be a variety of assessment methods including written assignments, class-based work and an examination for the GCSE English element.
This course leads on to any of our Access to Higher Education programmes.
Petroc has a range of resources to help you with your studies including excellent library and IT facilities, along with classrooms equipped with modern teaching technologies. Our staff are always there to provide any advice and assistance that you may require.
Pens, notepad and a memory stick.
