Futures
Entry Level 3

Awarding Body: Open Awards

Course Description

Futures offers a range of qualifications which support students’ basic skills such as reading, writing, spelling and numeracy work, life skills and preparation for adulthood.

There are no entry requirements for this course.

The primary purpose of the qualifications in the Futures course is to recognise personal growth and engagement in learning. These qualifications will help students become more confident and think more independently, as well as developing their life skills to help them access their community, enabling them to explore opportunities and develop skills for work in the future. This will be achieved through practical lessons and coursework.

This course is designed to provide you with the opportunity to build your skills and knowledge. The course also helps students become more confident and more independent so they can develop life skills to access their community.

This course is 100% coursework-based and assessments are completed throughout the year.

For this course, students are offered work experience, supported internships, and we are developing increased opportunities for community involvement for all of our students.

Students are able to progress through the different courses, providing they are showing academic progress.

Moderation of students’ work is set to take place from April 2019.
