Fareham College is hosting an in-person open event on Tuesday, November 30, from 5-8pm.
Simultaneous events are being held at each campus; Bishopsfield Road campus in Fareham the College’s Centre of Excellence in Engineering, Manufacturing and Advanced Skills Training (CEMAST) and its Civil Engineering Training Centre (CETC), both located a few minutes away in Lee-on-the-Solent, where the team will be on hand to guide prospective students and parents through all the options available.
Not only does the College have outstanding facilities, it offers a wide range of courses and experiences, including Apprenticeships, Traineeships and the new T Level qualifications. T Levels are a new qualification that focuses on high-level technical study and work-ready skills. They have been developed to offer a credible alternative to A Levels and will provide young people with a clear route to skilled employment, as well as progression to higher or degree Apprenticeships, or degree-level study at university. T Levels combine the career focus and practical elements of current technical and professional qualifications like BTECs and NVQs, with the theory and study of traditional A Levels.
A core component of the T Level qualification is an industry-based placement, where students will apply the theory they learn in the classroom to the workplace and develop the essential work-ready skills that employers are looking for.
Fareham College launched its first two T Level courses last September in Digital Production, Design and Development and Education and Childcare. From this September, the College is also offering T Levels in Design, Surveying and Planning; Digital Business Services; Digital Support Services; Health; Healthcare Science; Science and On-site Construction.
Having successfully bid for and been awarded grants previously to further develop facilities to support the delivery of these T Levels, Fareham College is now embarking on the creation of a new Centre of Excellence in Environmental Technologies to facilitate the delivery of the Building Services Engineering T Level, which the College will be offering from September 2022. The College will also be offering T Levels in Legal, Finance and Accounting and Engineering and Manufacturing from September 2022.
