  • A LEVEL PROFESSIONAL HONOURS PROGRAMME

    Exceed Expectations

    Our A Level pathways have been designed in response to the findings of some of the UK’s leading universities and businesses. Collectively, they have identified a need for students to be equipped with both the academic knowledge and practical skills required to succeed.

    Each programme contains three complementary A Level subjects which will be studied in the traditional way. In the first year, we are giving you the opportunity to undertake four AS Levels. In addition, you will also study professional qualifications relevant to your chosen career pathway. You will be provided with the opportunity to undertake valuable, relevant work experience and internships.

    As well as other professional qualifications, you will also be given the opportunity to complete the AQA Extended Project Qualification in your second year which is also recognised as a full AS qualification and in some instances is used during university interviews to explore a student’s passion for a particular subject.

    Why study on one of our pioneering programmes?

    • Excellent industry and academic links, including the National Health Service, MBDA and HUSCO International
    • The opportunity to gain additional qualifications such as LAMDA, First Aid and an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)
    • Industry and academic experts are on hand to provide A Level students with one to one guidance
    • UCAS and exam preparation workshops
    • Small class sizes
    • £2,000 cash scholarships to support academic studies
