We also offer our students a Skills for Life programme which may be undertaken in place of a Key Skills programme. This will be negotiated at Induction ?? during the first week or so of the new academic year. How will I study my Key Skill? If you are studying in a Vocational area your Key Skill will already be fixed as a part of your programme. All the work you undertake will be integrated with your vocational units; OR If you are studying for AS/A2 qualifications you will have two hours per week of Key Skills, taught in a discrete group; OR You will be placed on Skills for Life programmes alongside your main programme. Assessment Assessment is by completion of a portfolio of work and a test (from which some students may be exempt). Choosing a Key Skill You will choose an appropriate Key Skill with your Induction tutor at the beginning of the year. Your choice will complement your main programme and depend on what you have already achieved. Download PDF version of this text
