The Vision West Nottinghamshire College Foundation Pathway is aimed at Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 students who are not fully engaged in learning for a variety of individual reasons or those young people that have continually struggled with academic studies. The aim is to re-engage and motivate young people back into learning through a vocational route of their choice.
Students who attend Post 16 one year sixth programmes are able to access our vocational courses and are able to attend for either one or two days per week.
The college also offers a one-year transitional or bridging course for those students with additional learning and support needs that can be accessed for students who are both pre-16 and post-16 who are LDD.
