    16 -19 Study Programmes

    At West Suffolk College, we have designed our study programmes in line with the requirements of the Education and Skills Funding Agency.  Our study programmes are flexible, built around the needs of individual students, which supports their development and builds upon the College’s Three Pillars.

    Students on a 16-19 Study Programme will:

    1. Have a substantial qualification that stretches them and prepares them for education at the next level or employment
    2. Continue to study English and maths where these have not yet been achieved at GCSE grade 4 or above
    3. Undertake a period of work placement and/or work-related activity to apply the skills from their chosen course in the real world of work
    4. Develop their character strengths and broader knowledge and skills that are designed to help students to prepare for working and living in modern Britain
