Gateway supports young people who have been out of formal education to take steps into a vocational education pathway, whatever career they aspire to have. This programme is designed to support those aged 16+ (ie after Year 11) who have missed a signficant amount of education to overcome their barriers to learning and gain confidence. Students will be working at a range of levels and will be offered a personalised programme as a result.
The Gateway programme is personalised but will always include English and maths, usually at GCSE level, however there are some alternatives that may be considered depending on the circumstances.

The programme is based around personal development to support a transition back into education and ensure young people develop the strategies they need to be successful in adult life and their career.

What next?
Gateway students generally progress to a vocational course within the College - this could be at any level and will depend on the qualifications you have achieved. Gateway staff will work with you throughout the year to identify your area of choice and support you to understand the curriculum and meet key staff members to ensure a smooth transition.
Entry criteria
No formal entry requirements however Gateway students will not have been engaged in education for a substantial period of time.

Learning & method assessment
A group of students are made up of very mixed abilities and our sessions are tailored to the needs of the individuals. Teaching is done via workshop sessions, where the class is supported by the Learning Support Advisor (LSA) and Mentor.

The Mentor will also conduct 1:1 support meetings during this time. A Co-ordinator works across both sites, accessing each equally and offering tailored sessions.

We know that not all of our workshop sessions will appeal to or are needed by every student and therefore we offer a flexible timetable, with the option for students to opt out of workshops if needed.
