Full-Time Study for Year 10 and 11's

Some young people need to study at college on a full-time basis because school education is no longer suitable. These people can study in any of our curriculum areas on a course at a suitable level. The options available are listed in the Tameside College (PDF).

To make sure that young people develop their English and Maths skills during their studies, Functional Skills in English and Maths are built in to the package at an appropriate level. More able students are also offered the opportunity to sit GCSE Maths and English. Progression opportunities are generally available on to higher level courses or Apprenticeships.
