For adult learners wishing to join a course, you may be offered an interview and your previous experience can be taken into account if you don’t meet the standard entry requirements. Learners aged 16-19 will follow a study programme which will include GCSE or functional skills English and maths if you don’t already have your grade 4 (C).
