Level 2 Pathway

The Level 2 Pathway is designed for students who are not yet ready to study Level 3 courses.  It is a one-year stepping stone.  On completion of the Level 2 Pathway, students should be able to go on and access the Level 3 Pathway.  

Students will embark on a course of two subjects, alongside re-taking their English and/or maths qualification if they have not already achieved a grade 4.  Students on the Level 2 Pathway will also benefit from flexible working hours.
