The great thing about FL and GFE at the Academy is that there are so many different routes you can choose from to achieve your long-term aim.
Mike did three years in FL doing a mix of small courses in things that interested him like Art & Design, Hospitality and Catering and Creative iMedia. He also continued to improve his Maths, English, ICT and BSL. Mike said he was interested in office work using computers so he started doing work experience to try this for himself and he loved it.
He decided that his long term destination was to work in an office and he knew he needed to get a full vocational qualification to achieve this. He chose to move to GFE to study a BTEC Level 1 Diploma in Business Admin at Exeter College with one day a week on work experience.
Amina joined FL thinking she wanted to either work with children or work in catering. She studied for two years in FL doing a mix of small courses that helped her explore her ideas. She studied Childcare, Health & Social Care, Hospitality & Catering as well as improving her Maths, English, ICT and BSL. She completed work experience in Childcare, Catering and Health & Social Care.
Amina loved the Health & Social Care and decided she wanted a career working with and supporting people. She realised that she needed a full vocational qualification and made the transition to GFE. In GFE she studied a Level 2 Work Based Diploma in Health & Social Care. This course included 2 days a week work experience.
