Your Study Programme

If you are 16-19 years old then you have two main choices for furthering your education at college:

  • You will be enrolled on a full time Study Programme; or
  • You will have found a job with an employer who has taken you on as an apprentice, and Petroc will be providing the training in partnership with your employer.

If you are enrolled on a full time Study Programme, this will be delivered at college or online over a Monday to Friday working week. A Study Programme is made up of different parts including:

  • Academic, Vocational or Technical professional qualification 
  • Maths and English language development (if required)
  • External work experience and/or employability skills; or an Industrial Placement 
  • Digital literacy 
  • Online learning
  • Careers, Advice & Guidance
  • Enrichment activities
  • Tutorial sessions and Personal Development 
  • Self-directed study 
  • An option to participate in a choice of sport or arts activities, trip visits and competitions.

Each Study Programme has a career pathway which either leads to the next level in the subject choice, employment or a place at University. Progression after successfully completing either a Level 2 or a Level 3 Study Programme may also lead to starting an Apprenticeship.

Study Programmes are available at Entry Level and at Level 1 – all Study Programmes take account of your starting point and entry qualifications and are designed to support learning, development and growth leading to employment or further and higher education.
