Information, Advice and Guidance to support your programme and course selection
You will have had progression and careers advice at school and thought carefully about how the subjects you want to take at SSFC suit your plans for the future. Dependents on your GCSE results and prior academic experience, your starting point at Level 3 will allow you to build appropriate knowledge and skills for progression to university, Higher Apprenticeships or employment. Our aim is to make sure that you are on the programme of study that you are best suited for, that helps you to prepare for your future and that supports your success.
Our experience of teaching A levels and other Level 3 courses for over 35 years, as well as data evidence, tells us that your performance across a range of GCSE courses is the best indicator of a successful outcome for you. Students who achieve well at Level 3 will usually have C grade (or equivalent) or above in English Language and Maths and, in addition, have a strong profile of grades that support their subjects of choice. Most subjects have additional specific entry requirements so make sure you check the individual subject information below to see what they are.
At open events, schools visits, interview, pre-enrolment and enrolment, Curriculum Advisers are available to answer any questions you may have about your study options after your GCSEs.
Remember that in Further Education, if you have not achieved English Language or Maths GCSE at C or equivalent grades, you will need to continue to study them.
