City College Plymouth is adding two new exciting pathways, teaching and sustainability, to its portfolio of hugely successful and popular Access to Higher Education courses.
Access to Higher Education courses are specifically designed for students without the necessary university entry requirements and provide a “second chance” for those that perhaps did not benefit fully from their previous experiences of education.
Access courses cover core skills such as English, maths and study skills, as well as offering a range of specialist subjects. The courses last an academic year and are studied over three days a week - some are also available on a part-time basis.
Starting in September, the College will be running a new teaching pathway, specifically designed for those looking to go into teaching as a profession. They will also be offering a sustainability pathway, within its environmental science course, for those interested in any of the emerging careers that sustainable development can offer including renewable energy, marine science, ocean exploration, environmental science or environmental conservation.
Head of Arts and Sciences at the College, Andrew Stittle, said: “Our access courses are very popular with both students and higher education institutions. We have helped hundreds of students not only to gain the confidence they need to apply for university, but also to acquire the essential study skills to help them to progress successfully onto a degree level programme.
“We are thrilled to be offering two new pathways. Teaching is a popular profession and we can help students gain the right skills to go onto university and then teacher training. Sustainability is becoming increasingly popular - we are all now more aware of the importance of understanding the need to sustain the world’s limited resources and the impact of climate changes on our environment and so we have designed a new course to help those that want to understand more and want to do more to help sustain our planet”.
