The Step-Up programme is designed to offer a pathway for students who have not yet met the entry requirements for our Level 3 courses. It provides a great platform for students to specialise in a particular pathway, which will then allow them to achieve the equivalent of three A-levels over three years.


In the first year, students will specialise in either Business, Creative Media or Sport and work towards the completion of courses worth the equivalent of two GCSEs, which students will complete alongside GCSE English and Maths where a grade 4 is still required.

Upon successful completion of their first year, students will then be able to progress to an equivalent Level 3 course(s) assuming they have met the entry requirements.

To enrol on the Step-Up programme, students will need a minimum of 4 GCSEs at grade 3.

For more information on this programme, please apply for GCSE English and Maths (both courses) and we will arrange a course guidance meeting.
