Overview of Courses

Your individual programme of study will be carefully designed for you by our expert team. This will help you take the next steps in life to fulfil your dreams.  We offer a wide variety of courses including A Levels, BTEC Certificates and Applied A Levels as well as GCSE re-sits in English and Maths.

AS/A Level/BTEC/Applied Courses

A Level, BTEC or Applied? The main difference between these courses is that A Levels are assessed mainly by examination with some coursework elements whilst BTEC and Applied A Levels are entirely coursework based with some practical assessments.

How many subjects will I study? In the first year, most students study 4 subjects before continuing with 3 subjects in their second year.

GCSE English and Maths We offer one-year GCSE re-sit courses in English and Maths if you narrowly missed gaining a grade C and need to improve your grade. These courses will be studied alongside your other subjects.

Which course should I choose? Your choice of course depends on your GCSE results, interests and career aspirations. You will be treated as an individual and guided to choose the course which will help you to achieve your potential.

Entry Requirements for AS/A level/BTEC/Applied Courses

A minimum of 5 grade Cs from separate GCSEs or BTEC equivalents as appropriate. For some subjects, you must have at least a grade B in the subjects which you choose to study (see Subject Information or visit www.ssc.ac.uk for further details).

Personal circumstances are taken into account as they may affect your examination performance. You will have an opportunity to give us details of any relevant circumstances at your interview.
