There are dedicated workshops for aeronautical and aerospace, automotive and motorsport, marine, manufacturing, mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering, along with race cars, helicopters and aircraft.

How are T Levels taught?

T Levels take two years to complete and are a lot like A Levels; in fact, they have an even wider scope because, as well as a high level of classroom-based learning, you will develop the practical skills needed to actually carry out a job in your chosen subject area. To be accepted on a T Level course, you will need 5 GCSEs at grade 9-5, including English and Maths. Assessment will take place through a combination of exams, coursework, workplace observations, an employer project and an end-point assessment. In order to pass the qualification, you must have fully completed the industry placement element of the course and gained the necessary level of work experience which will be validated by an employer. When completed, the qualification will be worth the same as three A Levels and carry the equivalent UCAS points.

Your T Level will help you to step straight into your chosen career, an Apprenticeship or a degree. Wherever your future is heading, take it to the next level. From September 2021 we will be offering T Levels in:

An industry placement, during which you will gain valuable work experience, is an essential part of the T Level qualification. Between 45-60 days in an industry placement will be completed throughout the two-year course.

Digital Production, Software Design and Development

This level of work experience means you will develop the workplace skills that employers are looking for, and also gain a clear idea about what the job you want to do will involve.

On-site Construction

If you work hard and develop a good relationship with your work experience employer, you have a valuable opportunity to secure future employment.

Traineeships are purpose-built pre-Apprenticeship or employment programmes. They usually last for six months and are specifically designed to help you to develop important employability skills that are necessary to find, keep and be successful in a job – and to stand out to potential employers.

Apprenticeships are a great option for all ages, whether you are a school or college leaver, or employed in a role at your place of work. Our range of Apprenticeship programmes are designed to give you the option to earn while you learn, gaining new knowledge, skills and qualifications essential for future career success. Apprenticeships are available at different levels, so you can enrol for the qualification most suitable for your experience and career ambitions. Nearly three quarters (71%) of apprentices agreed that their chances of earning a higher wage in future had increased, and 80% agreed that their chances of going on to higher levels of training had also increased.

GRADE BOOSTER

& MATHS At Fareham College, there is a strong focus on making sure that all of our students achieve an English and Maths qualification at grade 4 or above. English and Maths are important skills that are essential for virtually every career path or further training opportunity, so it is very important that you work hard to secure these core qualifications. Employers want these skills

Most employers want their employees to have at least GCSE grade 4 in each subject – English and Maths could make the difference by giving you the competitive edge to get the job or promotion you want.

English and Maths GCSE ‘Grade Booster’ revision sessions If you are in Year 10 or 11 and would like some extra coaching in the leadup to your exams, we offer ‘Grade Booster’ revision sessions to help you prepare for your GCSEs. These classes combine study skills training, revision techniques and practice papers to help you increase your confidence in order to achieve the best possible English and Maths grades. Classes last for one hour, cost £20 per session or £100 for a six-week block, and run after school in groups of up to six students*. For more information, please email rosie.sharp@fareham.ac.uk or call 01329 815 229. *Subject to COVID-19 restrictions and in line with government guidance.

You need English and Maths to go to university. Many university courses require you to have at least a grade 4 in both GCSE English and Maths, some require grade 5s, so not having these qualifications could limit your chances of Higher Education.

It’s healthy!

Having a good grasp of English and Maths will give you more confidence, help you manage your finances better, have a stronger understanding of current affairs and generally help you to take more control over your day-to-day life.

Grades

Grade 4 will be considered a standard pass, while grade 5 will be considered a strong pass. If you have not achieved a grade 4 or above in English and Maths at GCSE level, you will automatically be required to work towards these qualifications at college. This is nothing to worry about as there is lots of support available to help you gain the qualifications you need.

23

For students in hardship, we may be able to offer some financial support towards travel costs. For more information email bursary@fareham.ac.uk.

Do I need to pay any fees?

There are no tuition fees for most 16-18 year old students. However, for some courses you will be asked to purchase your uniform. Some courses require students to pay for a DBS check, and under some circumstances, you may be asked to pay for examination entry fees.

Am I entitled to financial help?

We receive funds each year to help students from low income families to meet the costs associated with attending college; for example text books, uniform and other resources needed for their course. The Vulnerable Student Bursary is available to looked-after children, care leavers and students claiming Income Support in their own right. For more information email bursary@fareham.ac.uk.
