Fast Forward enables you to reach your goals at your own pace. Each term, you can sample different units which help you develop new skills for employment and industries, supported by a team of tutors who will help you to find a course that is right for you.
The Entry and Level 1 study programmes offer a broad range of vocational skills to help you to decide on your future career. These run alongside functional skills, Enrichment activities and the core Tutorial process which will ensure that you gain a wide range of skills needed to progress. There will be opportunities to take part in work experience or run enterprise activities within the College, as well as taking part in various day trips.
The units you choose will help you develop the skills needed to progress in any pathway and help you gain the qualifications and skills needed to progress into work, an apprenticeship or traineeship. The programme is flexible, with lots of support available – we can even help with 1:1 work to help gain your English and Maths qualifications.
To access Fast Forward, we will discuss how to best tailor the course to suit your needs at interview.
“My course had lots of variety such as Maths and English, enrichment, tutorials, trips and vocational lessons. This has prepared me for my future and I have learned a lot of new skills and have grown in confidence. I really enjoyed working in the College shop and my work experience on reception at the College. Next year I am doing a supported internship with the College in which I will spend four days a week on work placement and one day a week in college.”
