This year we are piloting a 7.5-hour course which is 3 lessons per week over two days. This will be aimed at new students to the college who are working at E1. Admission to this course will depend on students completing an online assessment and achieving no more than one pre-entry outcome. This class will be filled on a first-come basis. This is short course and students are expected to complete it in January. At this point, if they have successfully passed all three exam modules, they can progress to E2.
