Collyer's Prospectus

Some further guidance: Academic An entirely A Level route, this suits learners who have achieved well at GCSE and are confident with exams. Most students on these programmes progress onto universities with 90% achieving a 1st or 2:1. Students will normally choose three subjects. Mixed or Vocational Combining A Levels and BTECs or just BTECs, these routes are perfect for learners who prefer to mix coursework and exams and learn in a more practical way. Students will normally choose two or three different subjects or specialise in a preferred area if choosing a BTEC Triple. Technical Collyer’s is one of the first colleges nationwide to offer T Levels. These innovative qualifications combine 45 day industry placements with cutting edge study. These qualifications are brilliant for students who have decided on a future career path and want to specialise now. Students will choose one subject as their whole programme of study. Transition Designed for students who have just finished their GCSEs and achieved average grades of 3 to 4. If successfully completed, the Transition programme at Collyer’s provides an opportunity for students to progress on to a two year Mixed, Vocational or Technical programme. Students will normally choose a core course (e.g. Business BTEC Level 2) providing a progression route to Level 3 alongside transition content to develop skills and aptitudes for future success. Step 2: Choosing your subjects You can now make your subject choices. Most subjects will have specific entry requirements, which can be checked on the subject pages. When choosing your subjects, try asking yourself the following questions: • Is the assessment approach for each subject suited to my preferred way of learning? • Is the subject leading me towards my future progression goals? • Do I meet the entrance requirements for each subject? • Is this one of my strong subjects at school or something new I would like to try? 22
