The College Alternative for Under 16s

Fareham’s College Extra scheme is a bespoke programme for pre-16 students who may benefit from studying full time at College rather than in mainstream education.

We have close links with local schools to provide a bespoke alternative provision for students who are likely to have a more successful experience if they take part in a technical training course at College, instead of following the usual secondary education route.

Students who take part in College Extra will attend College on a full time basis and train in the subject area of their choice along with other full time students. They will also continue to work towards gaining their essential English and Maths GCSE qualifications.

We have a limited number of College Extra places available each year and will work closely with each individual student, their parent/ carer and school to ensure the most appropriate training programme is offered to meet their specific needs.
