The transition year is a one-year preparation course supporting progresion to either the T Level in Legal, Finance and Accounting or T Level in Management and Administration.
This course consists of an accredited business qualification as well as practical projects that will help you develop the necessary knowledge skills and behaviours for you to progress to your next steps.
Over the year you will study:
- Introduction to Business
- Introduction to Legal and Consumer Rights
- Business Documentation
- Working as a team.
You will be assessed via examination, as well as a series of practical activities that may require you to work independently or as part of a team.
The course will have a weekly employability focus aimed at developing your employability skills, confidence and communication. This will be supported by work experience in a business environment to prepare you for the T Level industry placement. Both academic and pastoral support is available throughout the course as well as through your work experience provider, who will help you apply the theory and skills learnt in college to real life industry applications.
There may also be a requirement to study additional Maths and English which will be at the discretion of the course lead to develop report writing skills and to meet the levels expected for the T level.
