Requirements

A sufficient standard of Numeracy and English Language is needed to cope with the demands of the course. We strongly advise you to have a GCSE in English language and maths at grade C or above as the majority of university providers will require this. All students will undertake diagnostic assessment to assess these skills during the course interview or induction process and you will be required to demonstrate that you can work at level 2 in these subject areas. Students may be able to study for one GCSE in either English Language or maths alongside the Access course. This will be discussed during the Access interview process.

Assessment

You will be assessed using a range of methods including presentations, essays, portfolio and an open book exam.

Progression

FdA Social Care Practice or FdA Early Years Practice at UCS Great Yarmouth.

Alternatively, you can go on to study at higher education level at a university of your choice.
