What is the Enrichment Programme?

The Enrichment programme offers a wide range of courses that can benefit students in a number of ways.  The courses enable them to gain an additional qualification, develop an interest, have fun and prepare for employment or University.

For example:

  • courses such as First Aid, Pre-teaching, Sports Leaders Award and Gym Fitness Instructor enable students with particular vocational aims to acquire specific skills and recognised qualifications which will help them in their future career
  • taking part in Work Shadowing or Volunteering, which can enhance applications for University courses, or perhaps act as a ‘taster’ for their future career
  • Foreign Language courses:interest-based courses in areas like Sport, Music, Drama and Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.  These enable students from across the College, who otherwise might not meet, to participate together
  • These include courses for students who have passed GCSE in a language and courses for beginners
  • They are offered in French, German, and Spanish and Italian
  • Citizenship, Critical Thinking, and Science in Society provide an opportunity to achieve an additional AS or A2 qualification.  These are valued by HE and employers
  • Junior University extension workshops and Oxbridge Groups: for students with the ambition and potential to apply for a place at Oxford, Cambridge or other prestigious Universities.  These groups provide the opportunity to get together with other students and prepare for their application and interview.
