Welcome to Barnet and Southgate College

David Byrne Principal and Chief Executive I am delighted that you are considering joining our increasingly large community of talented and successful students. Last year over 86% of all students achieved their learning goals with Barnet and Southgate College and I am proud of each and every one of those successes. We’re one of the largest colleges in London with over 14,000 students, delivering more than twenty subjects across three main campuses. Joining us means being part of a large and vibrant community of learning that will benefit you as you prepare for employment or university. Our diverse environment offers an excellent opportunity to meet a broader range of people, and a larger college brings with it bigger and better facilities with state-ofthe-art campuses, one of which only opened in September 2016. How happy have you been with the careers advice you’ve received so far? According to Ofsted three quarters of schools fail to provide impartial careers advice, so it’s possible that you’re looking at this guide not knowing how valuable the right pathway and qualification will be for your future job security. Here at Barnet and Southgate College we’re offering courses and careers advice that produce economically valuable skills. Many young people aren’t fully aware of the breadth of jobs and careers that are even available within

London and surrounding areas and that’s why I’m proud to say that we link the majority of our 1,500 courses to a specific career pathway or academic/university route. We want to help you achieve your goals; whether that’s getting the right job or apprenticeship or going onto higher education. Integral to this is giving you the correct careers support via our onsite careers advisors, student support services, mentors, an exclusive partnership with the REED jobs service and our online ‘Career Coach’ toolkit (see pages 8-9 for more information). Whether you’re looking for a course to progress onto university, a specific job or an apprenticeship, what’s paramount to us is being in step with the needs of our local economy and working closely with our strategic partners to adapt the content of our curriculum to ensure it’s relevant to employers and university progression. In addition to this, creating a parity of esteem between academic and vocational training is a priority for us, addressing the continuing mismatch between existing skills being taught and the skills employers are demanding for jobs in the future. In line with this, we’re excited to announce an exclusive partnership with the Centre of Excellence for Telehealth and Assisted Living at Buckinghamshire New University, which will see us become the London Hub for Telecare and Assisted Living Technologies’ training. Plus we are unveiling a new dentistry qualification and dental apprencticeship. These inititiatives will ensure that their students receive industry specific skills and training, leading to the right job. Deconstructing perceptions around vocational industries and stereotypical roles, working closely with local employers, economists and employment advisors are all vital components to our continued success. I believe that here at Barnet and Southgate College you can be proud of your chosen vocational qualification.

As part of our approach we analyse the jobs market across all relevant industry sectors; actively filling any local skills gaps that may be developing with the appropriate courses and subsequently the trained students for the job. We offer a broad range of full and part time courses in: A Levels, foundation degrees, technical and professional qualifications, vocational training, work skills training, apprenticeships across a range of levels plus education and employment pathways for people with learning difficulties and disabilities. Employability and enterprise are at the core of what the College is all about and as part of this we seek out relevant partnerships and work with organisations such as the Peter Jones Academy. Work placements and industry experience are integral to most courses across all departments and it’s this vital experience that gives our students the competitive edge when looking for a job, securing a place at their chosen university, or having the inspiration to re-train at college for a new career. The UK economy needs an adaptable, vocationally inspired and technically skilled workforce. We do all that we can to prepare students for jobs and employment - some which may not even exist yet. At Barnet and Southgate College we will expand your horizons and help you align your talent and skills with the variety of jobs that are out there, plus you’ll be joining a friendly, supportive and successful college. Be part of our story. I look forward to meeting you.

There are a lot of career pathways out there, and due to the historical poor standard of careers advice available to students, this means that many students are not fully aware of the breadth of jobs and careers open to them. Therefore at the end of each course profile, we have tried to demonstrate the types of careers that studying your chosen course could lead to. However, there are various different paths and rarely one straightforward route, additional qualifications or criteria may be needed to enable you to progress into your career choice. This is meant as a guide only, if you would like further advice then please book an appointment with one of many Career Advisors. If you are unsure about your future, then book an appointment with a Careers Advisor by calling: 020 3764 4403 (Lines available Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm; these are NOT 24 hr / weekend numbers)

Careers advice is on “life support” in many schools in England with teenagers having little knowledge of the workplace.

Three-quarters of schools ‘fail to provide careers advice‘. Too many pupils are being pushed towards A-level courses and university because of a “worrying” lack of traditional careers advice in schools. Ofsted

The Careers Car Our Careers Car comes fully equipped with a Careers Advisor who has direct access to Career Coach, helping you to explore opportunities and possibilities. Keep an eye out at your school or local events, our little car gets around!

Students are not fully aware of the breadth of jobs and careers open to them, this often leads them to develop aspirations that are neither determined by ability or future available jobs.

Career Coach Barnet and Southgate College now uses Career Coach, a powerful software tool to help you to choose appropriate courses and work out what you might earn.

When you search for a course you will be given access to up-to-the-minute careers information, vital to help you plan your future. Career Coach offers students and advisors the chance to delve deep into the labour market before deciding on courses of study. It connects them to careers and employers, even approximating the wages they can expect to earn and the job security they are likely to encounter.

8

The software uses labour market data from developer EMSI’s unique dataset to observe market patterns and predict trends. These patterns are organised and compiled into a straightforward tool that any learner can use. Career Coach shows students and advisers how to get wherever they want to go, puts critically important job information at everyone’s fingertips, and is now incorporated into all of our full time and part time online course listings.

Information for parents In September 2013 the education leaving age rose to 17 and in September 2015 rose again, to 18. However, post 16 education doesn’t just mean staying at school full-time: you can stay at school, go to college, take up an apprenticeship or a part-time training course. You can earn money and learn new skills at the same time if you want to.

Our A Level department, based at the Wood Street campus is the second largest provider in Barnet and Enfield, providing each student with a clear route to university. However, for many students academic routes are not the most appropriate option; with an increasing number of vocational and professional education courses on offer there are now other exciting pathways which often lead to greater success and career fulfilment. A survey conducted by the Edge Foundation discovered that many young people are being actively discouraged from opting for vocational and professional education - with just a quarter of parents (27%) judging it to be worthwhile*. This is despite evidence that people who choose a practical, hands-on approach to learning are as fulfilled as people who took an academic route.** Additionally, research from the 2012 First Steps to Wealth Report, illustrates that the lifetime earnings of a graduate are comparable with the lifetime earnings of many former apprentices - for example construction apprentices earn a total of £1,504,000 over their life time compared with £1,612,000 for a graduate,*** dispelling the fear that university degrees lead to much higher life time incomes. The survey identified that many students (22%) are being advised by parents and schools that they are ‘too clever’ for vocational and professional education. Only half (51%) of parents encouraged their child’s choice to pursue vocational qualifications, compared to three quarters (74%) who were happy to support their child through an academic route.

10

This highlights a growing problem that parents often aren’t getting access to current and relevant careers advice to make the right choices for their child’s future. We understand that parents remain the biggest influence on their child’s education (44%), so we need to equip you with the knowledge and skills to be able to give sound, informed advice about the options available. The stigma attached to vocational and professional education is totally unfounded and the UK has a huge challenge ahead in ensuring that our children are equipped with the right skills to ensure a successful workforce of the future. It’s therefore essential that parents understand the future job market and enable and encourage their child to train appropriately, so they do not become another number in the endless list of graduates that cannot secure employment. As a college, we want to know how we can help you to better advise your child and with this in mind we’ve developed various communications channels for you to engage with.

Apprenticeships & Traineeships Apprenticeships

Traineeships

Is a Traineeship for me?

Apprenticeships refer to on-the-job training, which leads to a nationally recognised qualification, developed by industry experts. They provide an ideal stepping stone to your chosen career or further education.

Traineeships are training programmes to help students gain the skills needed to prepare for and secure an Apprenticeship or sustainable employment.

You must be: •  16-24 years old; •  Not currently in a job and with little work experience - but still motivated and willing to gain employment;

•  Intermediate Apprenticeships equivalent to Level 2 (or GCSE level);

Employer feedback consistently reports that young people who apply for vacancies often lack work related skills and attitudes. Traineeships help develop skills through work preparation training, work placements, and by improving English and maths.

•  Advanced Apprenticeships equivalent to Level 3 (or A Levels);

We offer Traineeships in a number of sectors:

•  Higher Apprenticeships – equivalent to Level 4/5 or degree level.

• Automotive

•  Interview preparation

• Beauty

•  Job searching

• Business

•  Self-discipline and inter-personal skills

• Construction

•  Work placements

• Digital Media

A work placement will provide you with employment experience, developing your workplace skills and providing an opportunity for you to prove yourself to an employer. English and maths skills will also be taught if you have not achieved a GCSE Grade C or equivalent in these subjects.

Apprenticeships generally fall into one of four categories:

•  Trailblazer Apprenticeships - standards developed by employers for specific job roles. Your training would normally include: •  A knowledge based element (Technical Certificate);

• Electrical

•  A competency based element (NVQ);

• Hairdressing

•  Transferable or functional skills (such as: English, maths, IT);

• Health and Social Care

•  A module on employment rights and responsibilities; •  A module on personal learning and thinking skills; •  One to four years to complete (depending on the scheme and the ability of the Apprentice).

12

• ICT • Sport

•  Qualified below Level 3.

What takes place on a Traineeship? Your training will cover: •  CV writing

Now open! Our new Colindale Campus The brand new College campus forms part of a major regeneration scheme in Colindale.

The new Colindale campus opened in September 2016 and replaces the former Grahame Park Campus. The new campus on Bristol Avenue is a 5 minute walk from Colindale tube station (Northern Line).

public. Also based at the new campus is the Construction Technology Centre for the College’s brickwork, carpentry and joinery, plastering, wall and floor tiling and plumbing courses.

The brand new five-storey building is a jewel in the community with a bright and modern feel, coupled with its accessible location and improved tube and bus links, it ensures an improved experience for both new and existing students and the local community.

The cutting-edge facilities have been built in line with industry advancements and support students’ skills development and progression right through to higher level qualifications.

The state-of-the-art campus is located within a thriving area of Colindale that forms part of the wider regeneration of the Grahame Park area. It houses the ‘Wella Centre of Excellence’ featuring the College’s hairdressing, barbering, beauty and spa management courses; where both the beauty spa and hairdressing salon are open to the 14

Additional courses that run from the campus include foundation learning; maths and English, Level 1 Childcare and Health and Social Care, ESOL and YESOL courses and IT and creative computing courses. Additional community services at the new campus include a public library and a new ‘hub’ for the Barnet Centre for Independent Living.


Technical Baccalaureate A Tech Bacc may help you to get there

There is a lack of highly skilled workers in the UK; this is because not enough people are learning high level technical skills alongside academic skills. The Tech Bacc may be the solution. The Tech Bacc (Technical Baccalaureate) is a new, professional qualification and provides a different way to learn, ensuring you gain the right combination of skills to get you into employment. It contains: •  BTEC Level 3 in either: Engineering, Computing, Digital, Sports Sciences, Business or Motorsports Technology •  A Level Extended Project •  A Level Core maths •  Internship

Take your own path This is a challenging study programme, so only those with the right attitude and career ambitions will be invited to join this unique and specialised pathway. Don’t be pushed into something that isn’t right for you, A Levels are not the only academic route to your chosen university and/or career. Once you gain the Tech Bacc suite of qualifications and experience you will be able to progress onto university, into employment or into a Higher Level Apprenticeship.

A word about... English and maths

We believe that a sound grasp of English and maths is vital for the best chance of progression, whether that’s university entrance or employment. Don’t just take our word for it: according to employer surveys on job readiness, the need for English and maths skills is a major factor in recruitment decisions. It isn’t all about jobs either. Achieving a good grade GCSE or Functional Skills qualification in English and maths sets you on a positive path to better health and financial wellbeing throughout your life. So here at Barnet and Southgate we will offer you a supportive environment in which to brush up on English and maths skills so that you achieve your goals. Our technical and professional programmes include mandatory components for those students who need them. Our specialist staff, some of the very best in their field, will be on hand to help! Don’t worry if you found these subjects difficult at school - it is a completely different experience at Barnet and Southgate. We ensure that all students have access to an online learning course for both English and maths and that personal tutors and English and maths teachers support them to make good use of this. Students with a GCSE D or Functional Skills Level 2 will be able to retake to gain a C. Students that have a C but require an A-B grade for university or employment can take the GCSE again while on their course. Many students will be enrolled on a Functional Skills English/maths class, this will help them develop skills for employment and many students take a GCSE course the following year. In addition, the participation age for education and training has been increased to the age of 18, but this does not mean that you have to remain at school. You can study at college, either in the classroom or as an apprentice whilst continuing to study your maths and English GCSE.

Key Changes to GCSEs The new qualifications will: •  Provide a stronger foundation for further study and employment, keeping pace with the demands of universities and employers.

I didn’t like maths at school but my teacher at college made maths fun.

•  Support students in developing the knowledge, skills and values they need for life in modern Britain.

A Levels & GCSEs

Biology EDEXCEL

A Levels Duration: 2 years Campus: Wood Street Level: 3

What will I study? You will have the opportunity to study 3 A Level subjects. Highly academic students will have the opportunity to take an additional AS including the Extended Project qualification. All A Levels will be delivered in the new linear style which means that students will study three subjects over two years and have exams at the end of the course. We will not be continuing with AS exams as they do not count towards the final exam. To progress to the second year you will need to pass the end of year assessment and have a good record of attendance, punctuality and work completion. Intensive A Levels are offered in some subjects.

How will I be taught and assessed? Lessons typically consist of teacher led sessions with interactive activities and practical exercises. There are key assessment points throughout the year which mirror the specific exam that will be taken in the summer. Enrichment activities take place which enhance the learning experience.

What are the entry requirements? For 3 A Level subjects you require between 5 and 6 GCSEs grade A*-C (8/9-4/5) in academic subjects, taken at one sitting. The new grading system may be reviewed as we are uncertain at this stage of the status of grades in relation to academic potential. For 4 A Level subjects you require 6 GCSEs grades including A*-B (8/95/6) in academic subjects taken at one sitting. This combination needs approval from a curriculum manager. There may be specific requirements, which will be explained at your interview. Applicants may also be required to take an online aptitude test or other subject-specific qualifying test. Those with other qualifications may be considered at the discretion of the College.

What can the course lead to? You will be equipped for a wide range of Higher Education courses and Higher Apprenticeships

26

Biology is a popular subject exploring many different aspects of this science. Through the course students develop an analytical approach to the study of the natural world and will understand the importance of context in applying biological ideas. An enquiring mind is essential for success in this subject and the course will enhance your ability to analyse and evaluate scientific methodology. Well-developed English skills are desirable. You should have good mathematical abilities and must realise the importance of self-study to success.

Business AQA

Business Studies allows students to explore the factors which enable firms to compete with rivals and determine which strategies to adopt to promote a successful enterprise. A strong focus on ethical and social responsibilities gives the student the opportunity to view qualitative issues as part of the study of the business environment. Students are encouraged to adopt a critical attitude to business behaviour and will be required to evaluate company performance and suggest strategies for improvement.

Chemistry EDEXCEL

Chemistry is a very interesting and well regarded subject, which helps develop a wide range of transferable skills. Chemistry helps us to understand ourselves and all the substances and living things in the universe. Students will study topics in the three main branches of chemistry: physical, organic and inorganic. Modern instrumental techniques are also covered at both AS and A Level. Chemistry involves doing things as well as learning about them, so students will complete at least one practical session a week.

Economics EDEXCEL

Economics will enable you to develop an understanding of the economic concepts and theories that guide business, government and individual decisions. Economic issues are analysed and investigated both nationally and internationally.

Further Maths EDEXCEL

Further mathematics qualifications are highly regarded and are warmly welcomed by universities. The course enables students to develop sophisticated mathematical skills and increase knowledge. For someone who enjoys mathematics, it provides a challenge and a chance to explore new and more complex mathematical concepts. The higher level of confidence and enjoyment of the subject leads to better attainment across all mathematics modules and maths related subjects. Choosing AS Further Maths makes the transition to a mathematics-rich university course easier. Importantly, it enables students to distinguish themselves as able mathematicians in their applications for university and future employment.

A Levels & GCSEs

English Language and Literature AQA

This interesting and lively course encourages you to look closely at the way we speak and write in modern 21st century society. You will be asked to engage creatively and independently with a wide range of multimodal texts and undertake a coursework project of your choice on an aspect of language use such as ‘gender difference in speech’ or ‘scripting in soap operas‘. You will also have the chance to undertake re-creative and transformational writing, and engage in discussion on contemporary texts, both poetry and prose.

English Literature AQA

English Literature is a dynamic and exciting course that will encourage you to develop your enjoyment of literary texts through reading widely across a whole range of texts, both classic and modern. The course invites you to share your ideas through discussion and writing, considering also how modern interpretations of texts such as those in film and TV present us with different critical interpretations and the effect this has on the reader. In the second year you will have the opportunity to undertake an independent coursework study comparing a theme such as the Gothic or representations of madness in two texts of your choice.

Film Studies WJEC

Film Studies is an exciting and successful subject designed to deepen students understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of film, the major art form of the twentieth century. It includes a variety of production contexts (storyboarding, film making, screen writing) and viewing experiences including British and American Film and World Cinema. With its emphasis on visual storytelling and aesthetics, it extends areas of experience covered by English Literature, Art History and Art and Design specifications.

Government & Politics EDEXCEL

Government and Politics is a popular subject. Through the subject, students develop an understanding of the British political system. They develop their conceptual understanding of political issues and ideas. Students also develop important study, research and essay writing skills.

History EDEXCEL

History is the study of change over time. Historians explore how and why societies change and develop, in terms of their political, economic and social systems, but explaining change is not a simple matter, and historians disagree frequently. The study of history therefore demands reasoned debate over different interpretations of the past. Is change the result of the efforts of leading individuals, or are larger social forces more important? This is one of many themes that students will study in the context of social change, such as the abolition of the slave trade in 1807, or political change, such as the unification of the many German states in 1871.

Law OCR

This is a subject for students interested in developing an understanding of the main principles of English Law. In the first year the AS focuses on analysing the English Legal System. It will provide knowledge on the criminal process from when a suspect is arrested, the trial and if convicted the range of sentences. It will explore the civil process starting from bringing a claim in the courts, the trial and the legal personnel involved. In addition it will involve analysing the theory of law making by Judges, Parliament and the EU. In the second year the main focus is the Criminal Law. This will involve studying the most serious criminal offences such as murder, manslaughter, robbery and wounding with intent. Students will then have to advise a defendant of possible defences such as loss of self-control, intoxication and self-defence. Students enjoy Law as it develops the ability to debate legal arguments, focus on current legal issues, develop their analytical skills and problem solve.

Maths EDEXCEL

The course is an exciting one with students exploring many aspects of mathematics. Problem solving skills are enhanced in the pure maths units and practical applications of mathematics are examined in the mechanics and statistics options. The course involves the use of technology in the form of graphical calculators and computers, investigations and practical work in addition to excellent traditional classroom teaching.

Music EDEXCEL

If you want to learn more about musical performance, historical works, composition and theory, then this is the course for you. If you are planning a vocational career in music – be that in teaching, performance or composition, then this course will give you the grounding you need to move on to a specialist degree course. However, it’s also suited to those that simply love the subject, enjoy performance and want to develop their skills in this area. Although there is a practical element to this course you’ll learn a lot about the theories and historical examples that have shaped Western classical music. The course has a large amount of coursework, enabling you to explore different ways of working. You will mix classroom time with listening to professional works on DVD and trips to live music venues, workshops and performances. You’ll learn through listening to professional practitioners, before having a chance to interpret and experiment for yourself.

Music Technology EDEXCEL

You will acquire practical skills relating to sequencing and recording, as well as arranging and composing using music technology. You will learn to recognise the musical, technical and stylistic features of modern recorded music. In addition, for A2 you will learn to compose and recreate sounds using music technology and will develop your ideas from AS level into more complex and professionally produced productions. You will also produce a detailed studio recording of a band.

A Levels & GCSEs

Photography WJEC

This linear qualification will help you gain photography skills in the use of darkroom work, location photography and studio flash. With a background in the contextual study of past and current photography practices you will be supported in developing a personal and experimental visual style in your own photography during extended assignments. Evidence for assessment will include a display of your concluding unit work and accompanying sketchbooks into which you record your weekly progress through written critical evaluation and research. Assessment is through 100% coursework, where students should be prepared for 1 day per week of homework. This subject includes opportunities for trips to art galleries and to locations for photography workshops.

Physics EDEXCEL

Physics is a dynamic subject that is central to our society and can open up a huge area of employment opportunities. If you are passionate and inquisitive about how things work and are good at practical and systematic investigation using mathematics, logic and clear scientific language you will find this subject very rewarding. If you are prepared to put in the effort required to research new topics and develop your skills of thinking deeply and methodically about what you discover, working with great organisation and sustaining a coherent line of reasoning then you will attain great success at Physics. You will leave this subject being able to give descriptions of the underlying concepts and principals that predict the physical world and have improved skills of evaluation, insight and analysis that will allow you to link theory to practice - a skill set that will be sought after by employers.

Psychology AQA

Psychology explores various explanations of human behaviour. You will explore the role of genetics and the role of the environment and culture in shaping behaviour. In the first year of Psychology you will study topics such as: - ‘What is abnormal?’ “How important are children’s early relationships?”, “why we change our beliefs or behaviours in response to real or imagined social pressure?”, “How does our memory works and how can we improve it?” In the second year you will explore theories of relationships and why they break up, theories of perception and how we perceive the world and how and why people develop mental illness. Psychology is not about your personal opinions but rather about evaluating theories using a body of scientific evidence.

Physical Education AQA

The new PE specification focuses on new and contemporary topics that are relevant to today’s sporting world. It is a subject for students of all abilities and enables the development of a well-rounded skill set. You will have the opportunity to focus on the impact of psychological factors on performance and will learn about the evolution of sport in society.

28

Importantly you will explore interesting technological developments in relation to sport and society. In terms of practical skills, you will be given the opportunity to build on your experience and improve techniques in a sport of your choice .You will be assessed in one activity in the role of either a player or coach.

Sociology AQA

Sociology is an exciting subject that challenges your everyday experiences and expectations. Essentially, it is the study of the relationship between the individual and society and critically examines the role of nature and nature in explaining human behaviour and social interaction. It seeks to explain why different people in society have different life chances. For example, why do some people live longer than others? Why do girls do better in the education system than boys? Why do some engage in criminal activity? Sociology seeks to propose explanations for such changes and thus attempts to offer explanations for social behaviour. Classes are lively with much focus on debate, analysis and contemporary examples.

Statistics AQA

A Level Statistics provides students with a wide range of techniques for understanding and analysing data, which are increasingly important skills in a world of constant change. The emphasis of the qualification is on understanding the implications and limitations of the various techniques in the context of practical situations. The course provides useful support for a variety of other subjects, including many of the Social Sciences.

Extended Project AQA

This is an AS equivalent course which lasts for one year. It will sit alongside your normal A Level choices and offers an extra dimension to your programme of study. It is the only AS where an A* can be awarded. The Extended Project can be in the form of either a dissertation, an investigation/field study with statistical analysis, a performance or an artefact. You will have to track your progress with an activity log and also give an oral presentation at the end about your Extended Project discussing the research process and your experiences. The Extended Project has been devised to develop a range of skills such as independent learning skills, investigation/research skills, how to be a critical thinker, oral and written communication skills. It has also been developed as a response to universities and employers concerns that young people do not have these skills. Interestingly students gain most marks on the processes involved in the Extended Project rather than the outcome (the completed project itself). The topic/research question that you select can either complement current studies or be based on future interests, perhaps career aspirations such as medicine.

Sports Management

The Sports industry is a booming business and is currently worth around twenty billion pounds and employs over 400,000 people in 175,000 businesses and organisations across the UK. Two thirds of the jobs are people competing in sport or supporting others in their sporting careers and the rest are working in sports media, sportswear manufacturing and the sports equipment industry. The actual range of jobs is huge and we try and reflect this in our courses. As well as playing and coaching, we open up areas such as: sports nutrition, sports psychology, strength and conditioning training, massage therapy and rehabilitation. With 15.5 million adults playing sport and over 7 million fitness club members and 5,600 fitness centres sport and fitness is an integral part of life in the UK. The sports industry is also called on for advice in nutritional products and weight management programmes. Industry expert Skills-Active say the fitness industry needs people with technical skills such as fitness instructing, personal training and exercise referral as well as to be able to give nutritional advice. There is also demand for sporting officials, coaches, teachers, instructors and schools’ or sporting club activity leaders. The average pay for a fitness instructor in London is around £330 a week, sports coaches, instructors and officials earn on average £470 per week; depending on your level of training. The College maintains excellent links with the sector and as part of your course you’ll build up a substantial practical portfolio either playing your chosen sport or via coaching hours. Our students help at Hazelwood Tennis Club, Middlesex University, local schools and summer schools. Once enrolled you’ll join one of our Sports Education Academies. Each works with world class partners meaning you get to visit, train and play in outstanding facilities. We offer rugby (league and union), football, basketball, athletics, boxing and tennis.

London is a hub for STEM jobs. In a given month, there were 78,400 vacancies in internet services, over 550 for engineering services and a further 520 for computer software. Offering a comprehensive range of STEM courses with cutting edge technologies and industry facilities at our Southgate and Wood Street Campuses, we aim to bring science to life and to make it both interesting and accessible to as wide a range of students as possible. Our courses enable you to explore a range of science topics through scientific investigation and demonstration. Biomedical sciences, genetic engineering and the exploration of renewable energy sources are significant growth areas in the UK. However just one in six 16-18 year olds take science subjects at A Level and fewer people are studying computing, down 50% since 2003. The success of the science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects at Barnet and Southgate College has been achieved through our dedicated and experienced staff. Students will benefit from a range of activities that enable top class learning to take place outside the formal classroom environment.

Engineering

Despite what you may think, the UK is great at engineering; its skilled and valued workforce are world class and engineering makes a vital contribution to the UK economy. However, at all levels of education, the UK doesn’t have either the current capacity or the rate of growth needed to meet the forecast demand for skilled engineers by 2022. By 2022 there will be 257,000* new vacancies in engineering enterprises and the importance of engineering is significant not only economically, but also for employment, as for every new engineering role an additional two jobs are created in the UK economy. The choice of careers within the engineering sector is vast; for mechanical engineering alone there are expected to be 5,262 new positions in London by 2020, with an average salary of £38,961 per annum. In fact, as the numbers of 20 to 64-yearolds who are the most economically active sector of the UK population declines, there is a distinct shortage in the pool of future engineering talent needed in order to meet the demand for engineering skills and to remain a global economic competitor. The UK is going to urgently need more young people to take up engineering over the next five to ten years, ideally doubling the number entering to study and work in the sector. The turnover of UK engineering enterprises is substantial, at £1.06 trillion in the year ending March 2011: that’s 23.9% of the turnover of all UK enterprises and over three times the size of the retail sector. It’s a booming industry, which you could be part of.

IT and Computing is an international booming industry, the UK hub of which is in London and the surrounding areas. The College’s aim is to equip you with the right skills for the wide variety of careers out there, from IT technicians to more specialist careers in IT project management, web design, IT business analyst and IT architecture. IT and Computing courses at the College not only focus on the technical skills but also the wider skill set required in a fast paced, commercial industry; skills that include: problem solving, customer service management, project management, risk analysis and relationship building. This ensures students are equipped with both the technical and the practical skills to progress onto employment, higher level apprenticeships, further study or higher education. As well as investing in our students, we encourage our staff to continue their professional development. They also take time to keep abreast of the latest innovations and emerging careers.

In fact, 26,331 IT business analysts, architects and systems designers are currently employed in London. This number is expected to increase by 4.2% over the next four years*. Also, look out for a brand new BTEC course coming soon in cyber security. We’re living in an age where an alarming 86% of business and IT professionals globally believe there is a shortage of cyber security professionals and, in 2015, 46% expected that a cyber-attack would strike their organisation, but only 34% thought they were prepared. Cyber security is recognised as a priority for governments and large organisations throughout the world. State-sponsored cyberattacks are widely reported and whilst the responsibility for them is usually denied, what is far more certain is that cyber-attacks on the national critical infrastructure and the theft of the intellectual property of large organisations are increasing. The cyber security courses at the College combine theory and practice and are taught by a team of specialist staff in purpose-built cyber security laboratories.

Computing and mobile technology currently employ 1.5 million people in the UK and over half a million new entrants will be required to fill these roles over the next five years.

Who is this course for?

Access to HE Diploma is an intensive study programme; therefore you must be completely committed to hard work and you are required to maintain 100% attendance.

In order to be able to achieve the full qualification, you will need to gain a minimum of 16 credits at Level 2. Furthermore, there will be on-going assessments and exams related to maths and English.

What can the course lead to? A successful learner may wish to progress onto one of our Access to HE Diplomas. This includes Access to Nursing, Access to Midwifery and Access to Social Work. However, it is important to note that a successful progression onto Access to HE Diploma is a subject to the following: •  Excellent attendance and punctuality •  Excellent attitude to learning and behaviour •  Successful completion of all 3 components of this course.

Higher Level Learning and Skills Centre

Barnet and Southgate College offers you a range of Higher Education and Access courses, allowing you to progress onto a number of career pathways. Some of our HE provision is delivered in partnership with University of Bolton, University of Derby and University of Hertfordshire. Whatever course you choose to follow, you can be assured that the qualification you achieve at Barnet and Southgate College will have the same equivalence as those attained at university, but with the added advantage of smaller class sizes, extra support from tutors providing pastoral care and personal guidance from your lecturers with academic work. Our fees are significantly lower than most universities offering similar courses and we have four campuses across north London. This offers many students the opportunity to continue to live at home whilst they study; it’s not only cheaper but often more convenient, and for mature students offers less disruption to family life. HE is taught at one of our three main campuses; Southgate, Wood Street or Colindale depending on the discipline and resources required. Motorsports has its own specialist resources centre at Southgate Campus. Deciding which HE course to choose and where to study is one of the most important decisions you may ever make. So come along and find out how we can help you make the right decision for a successful future in Higher Education, leading you onto a successful pathway to career progression or employment.

A supportive, friendly, local environment We offer personal one to one support compared to a huge university campus. Tutorial programmes ensure that students are well informed about employment skills required and the current regional job market.

144

We also offer •  Support workshops for students who may need help with Maths, IT, English or presentation skills. •  Smaller class sizes increasing your opportunity for one to one attention. •  Regular speakers and master classes •  Regular visits to local employers •  Internship opportunities and placements •  Strong links with local and regional employers

Our new Higher Level Learning and Skills Guide is available with details of our 2017-18 courses. You can pick up a copy at one of our 3 main campuses or view the guide online.

In a recent survey of University students, 4 in 10 of the first students to pay higher fees of up to £9,000 per year do not believe their courses have been good value for money. After the price of university tuition trebled in 2012, Barnet and Southgate College has endeavoured to keep it’s fees as accessible as possible, therefore as low as possible.

Survey : ComRes, from 1-7 May 2015, sample size : 1004, Undergraduates in final year of study.
