ng with

At Redbridge College you get a vocational education. You still learn all the skills you’ll need at university and in employment, but you’ll learn them in a more practical and hands-on way. What is vocational education? A vocational education is an alternative to A-Level study. Vocational courses are designed to help you progress directly to university or to the world of work, delivering more of the practical experience that universities and employers want. There are also fewer formal exams – vocational courses are mainly assessed by written assignments, tests and practical work. What is a BTEC Diploma? Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) Diplomas are practical qualifications that help you prepare for university or employment. They cover all the essential theory, but are also packed with real-world tasks and projects to prepare you for life after college.

us

What is an NVQ? National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) are work-based qualifications that are achieved through practical assessments and training. They’re designed to be achievable and learning is delivered in bite-sized chunks, followed by regular practical assessments (instead of formal examinations). What is an Apprenticeship? Apprenticeships allow you the opportunity to earn money while learning the skills you’ll need to succeed in your chosen career. You’ll gain vital work experience, be paid a fair wage and study towards a recognised qualification. How is college different to school? At college you’ll be treated like an adult. For most courses you’ll need to be on campus four days per week, there’s no college-wide uniform and you can call teachers by their first name. You’ll have the independence to manage your own study time and there’s a full programme of Enrichment activities and events, including great trips and paid work opportunities.

- s i ts e r GCSE Have you previously completed your GCSE English Language and/or maths, but didn’t do as well as you hoped? Many employers require you to have at least a C in GCSE English and maths before they’ll consider you for certain jobs, while others may ask you to take an equivalency test before they take you on. This is also true for a wide range of university courses – don’t get caught out when you come to make your application, just because you missed out on a C when you sat them last.

Entry requirements: « You must have previously achieved at least a grade D in GCSE English Language « You must be able to commit to three hours of lessons a week « You are able to undertake some self- directed study at home For more information speak to a member of the Recruitment team on 020 8548 7185 / 7187 / 7427 / 7460.

We can help… Having your GCSEs in English and maths at grade C can open a lot of doors when you apply for work or higher education. Getting a B, A or A* is likely to help open even more – so why not unlock your full potential and see where it can take you? “There’s so much I could say! I had a lovely time. We were very well supported and the class worked as a team. When I started I didn’t have much confidence speaking in front of people, but our teacher ensured that we all got involved and communicated with everyone. This worked really well, as by the end of the course I had no problem doing a presentation in front of the class.” Leonel Catate Level 3 Extended Diploma in Applied Science with GCSE English Language

At the moment I’m a care worker, and I’ve been in my current job for two years, but eventually I hope to qualify as a mental healthcare nurse. I plan to carry on working part-time while studying for my degree. “I think anyone interested in working in health and social care should go for it.

homes, hospitals; there are so many different routes that you can take. “It was very helpful to be working while I was studying because all the challenges I faced at work related directly to my study – it definitely made it easier. When we were learning something new, I already knew what the tutors were talking about.”

Faith Muchada, Health & Social Care lecturer, has had a varied career in the sector. “In my nursing career, I have worked in a variety of specialist areas including A&E, operating theatre, orthopaedics, paediatrics and gynaecology, as well as surgical and medical nursing.

Luke Rayner, Music and Visual Arts lecturer, says: “I got started in the industry when I was 16. The band I was in at the time won a local talent contest. The prize involved spending some time in a recording studio. The recording engineer took me under his wing and let me assist on some sessions. The recording my band made also led to us signing a minor record contract that, in turn, led to TV appearances on several national cable channels. “I knew I wanted a career in music; I carried on playing in bands and went to college to study performance and sound engineering. During this time I started getting engineering work at places like Abbey Road Studios and Sony Whitfield Street.

“One of the best things about working in the industry is the sheer amount of different things you get to do. I’ve also been lucky to share the stage with legends like Ronnie Wood, Leo Sayer, Def Leopard, Deep Purple and many more. “Studying music at Redbridge is a great experience; all the staff here have had some experience in the industry.

We asked Nigel Crowley, Performing Arts lecturer, to tell us a little about his experience: “I didn’t actually study drama until after I’d started my acting career. After working on Brookside for two years, I started getting involved in the theatre – particularly the Unity Theatre in Liverpool. “I was in a lot of plays, and I usually got cast as one of the young lovers – I always wanted to play the bad guy, but I didn’t have the look at the time. When I eventually did get round to training, I did it at the Liverpool John Moores University.” Nigel went on to explain what it’s like to study Performing Arts at Redbridge College: “I think it’s a great opportunity. You get the chance to be a part of your own theatre company, mirroring the professional approach as much as possible.

“We provide a supportive environment, where you are given the freedom to experiment – and to make mistakes – so that you can find yourself and discover your own unique talents.

Ketan Vyas MPharm (Hons) says: “When I started out at Redbridge College I didn’t realise how much I could achieve. I’d always wanted to work in a medical field and after doing some research the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Applied Science (Medical Science) was the most related course I could find anywhere locally. “The course was really interesting - the lecturers had so much enthusiasm and really made it fun. Their advice with regards to studying pharmacy was also excellent. Vocational qualifications particularly suit people who are practical, determined and like a challenge.”

include basketball and netball in the very near future. You will be able to train in your chosen sport and play to represent the college, while undertaking your chosen qualification. Previous students have gone on to play football at a professional level, and have been exposed to great career opportunities by participating in this scheme.


cess c u s t n stude Godfrey Poku says: “I had never been to America before and was really happy and excited to be given the chance to play football there. When I found out I had been selected for a scholarship I was so pleased.” Jose Figura says: “I’ve benefited a lot from my time at Redbridge College - without it I wouldn’t be in the position I am right now. The development I have received from the college’s coaches helped me a lot. After winning Nike’s ‘The Chance’, I’m now going on a world tour with the Nike Academy. We go to America first, staying for a week at the Nike headquarters in Portland, Oregon. Next we head to California, to visit the USA men’s national team training camp. We then fly to Italy to

train with Juventus FC, and then on to Manchester United at Carrington.” Luke Brook says: “I would recommend Redbridge College to anyone, because it gives you a fantastic platform if you have the drive and determination to go to uni. It gives you such an excellent start and inspires you to achieve what you want to achieve. Getting my Distinctions at college and earning my degree at university are among my proudest achievements to date – right up there with winning all my gold medals.”

Aidan Boxall, Sports lecturer, says: “I started out as a personal trainer, and setup my own sports injury clinic from there. I worked with sports teams and individuals, including both football and rugby players, as well as treating nonprofessional clients on a daily basis. I went abroad to work in Australia and America, coaching senior and youth football teams. I also worked in the nonleague game back home; with Fisher Athletic, Chelmsford City and AFC Hornchurch. “I got involved at Chelsea Ladies after spending two years as the Manager of Millwall Lionesses. At Chelsea I coached three players who played at London 2012; Claire Rafferty and Dunia Susi – from Team GB – and Hayley Moorwood, who played for New Zealand. Working at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground, alongside the Chelsea first team, was just fantastic.”
