The Applied Learning department is proud to offer its students a variety of subjects, which offer a practical way of learning. We teach our students’ skills that they can apply to any industry in their later lives. We have a wide option of courses available, which cater for all students no matter what their ability. The courses help teach the students by giving them the chance to learn ‘hands on’. It suits any type of student as the courses available are diverse and have different levels available to ensure every student is included.
The students not only learn the skills required for their courses but so much more. As the courses available are geared towards offering a ‘real’ working environment, the students experience a taste of what it would be like to work within their chosen vocational subject, which will help them in the future when deciding what career path to take.
The students are encouraged to interact with each other by working in groups and independently, whilst also offering them skills in customer service and business skills. This makes the vocational course widely acceptable to potential employees as the students have skills that can be used in the real world.
