Normally 4 GCSE Grade C’s or better in Mathematics, English and a Science will be required. Other qualifications i.e. BTEC First Certificate (minimum of overall merit), City & Guilds Certificates, Service Certificates, practical experience etc., may be considered as suitable. These will be judged on their individual merits at the time of application.
The topic areas will be assessed using written and practical assignments, phase tests and end tests. The lecturing team, based on the performance in all assessed work, will decide final grading for each unit. An integral part of the assignments is the recording of grades for interpersonal skills achieved and demonstrated throughout the programme. The Lincoln College Group is committed to maintaining Records of Achievement and providing appropriate feedback through action planning.
This programme will enable the successful student to progress onto associated Higher National programmes.
