Lots of young people, for many different reasons, need a different way to learn
than that available through school. Some young people find it much easier to learn
through practical activities, others find that
they have missed too much at school
to catch up due to illness or poor attendance, and some people are unlikely to achieve
many GCSE passes. Whatever the reason and ability, there is an extensive range of courses available at different levels. These options give young people access to
courses that are more vocational and not
normally available as part of the school curriculum.
Many young people in Tameside who are in these situations have benefited from studying
with the College. We understand that each young person has different needs, so we
have put together a package of courses that recognise them.
