Do you retain information better by ‘doing’ rather than ‘listening’? If so, then you may be suited to training on a practical, hands-on, vocational study programme. There are four main components of a Study Programme: TECHNICAL QUALIFICATION PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT MATHS & ENGLISH EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS 1.TECHNICALQUALIFICATION This is the main body of your programme, where you will gain the skills you need to progress into your chosen career.
There are a wide variety of vocational options to choose from.
2.PERSONALDEVELOPMENT All full-time students are assigned a Pastoral Attendance Lead (PAL) who will deliver a range of personal development activities designed to develop areas such as: Personal Skills Analysis, Equality & Diversity, Social Enterprise, Health & Well-being, Careers Exploration, Progression Opportunities. 3.MATHS&ENGLISH All students require Maths & English grade 4 (C) as a minimum to progress to Level 3 studies. For students with grades below these, we will support you to achieve a grade 4 or above. 4.EMPLOYABILITYSKILLS All students will develop their employability skills through a variety of real work experiences and have the opportunity to complete our Employability Skills Passport.
9 www.hull-college.ac.uk / 01482 329943 www.hull-college.ac.uk / 01482 329943 10 You may have heard the words ‘vocational’ ‘BTECs’, ‘NVQs’ or ‘Diplomas’ – these are all terms used to refer to technical qualifications, where you train full time to gain the specific industry skills you need to enter the career path of your choice. There’s a wealth of vocations to choose from, Catering to Business, Hairdressing to Fashion Design...and many more. Your Maths & English GCSE grades are critical to your future, whatever your career ambitions, and are central to work and life; success in these subjects is linked to better life chances and greater achievement.
PRACTICALLEARNINGASSESSMENT Technical qualifications are focused on developing practical, hands-on skills and you’re measured through ongoing assessment. You are required to regularly demonstrate the skills you have gained, until they meet the standards set. Over time, you will create a portfolio of evidence that records your achievements and demonstrates competence in all modules. REALWORKENVIRONMENTS Hull College delivers training in our industry standard training environments, such as Salon QG, The HU1 Riverside Restaurant, the Construction and Motor Vehicle workshops or our new Cabin Crew air cabin simulator.
These purpose built facilities give you the opportunity to gain real work experience and skills whilst still enjoying the advantages of studying in a College based surrounding with your peers.
ENTRYREQUIREMENTS Courses start at foundation level and progress through levels 1, 2 and 3. The higher the level of qualification you hold, the more technically skilled you will be and more likely to enter the workforce at a higher level. Some vocational areas require you to start your training at Level 1 or 2 and work your way up. This is because you will need to master the basics first before you can develop advanced skills. You can see the specific entry requirements for each qualification in this course guide. Remember, the level of study programme you enrol on will depend on you meeting the criteria for Maths & English - if you don’t then you may need to re-sit these GCSEs first.
As part of your Study Programme, you will be required to complete or resit your Maths & English GCSEs if you haven’t gained a 4 (C) or above at school, and your grades will affect which level of course you are offered at Hull College, and the length of time it will take for you to reach Level 3. Using sophisticated computer assessment software, we will identify your strengths and areas for development and enrol you on the appropriate Functional Skills or GCSE course. Functional Skills are designed to help you master the basics as you build your confidence. Once you’ve achieved Functional Skills at Level 1, you will then progress onto the GCSE course in the following academic years, as we gradually support you to reach grade 4 or above.
STUDENTSWITH: GRADES4-9 will not be required to complete any further Maths or English qualifications GRADE3 will re-sit their GCSE course GradeU-2 will begin a Functional Skills course at Level 1 and then progress onto GCSE Whatever your starting point, we can help you reach your goals.

- Studying hard and gaining good qualifications are important, but that is only one part of what we look for in our future workforce. A can-do attitude, positive outlook, strong work effort and commitment to putting clients first are key attributes we look for in all our employees and new recruits. Tutors have the opportunity to get to know their students over a much longer period than an employer might have during a typical recruitment process...Our business has benefited immensely from sourcing talented and enthusiastic students directly out of

- Spectrum Noir sponsored a design competition for Graphic Design students at Hull School of Creative Arts. Students were allowed to fully flex their imagination and technical skill as they explored the theme of ‘Creative Expression’ using a variety of hand-drawn and digital techniques. We were impressed not just by the diversity and originality of the entries we received, but also by the thought each student had clearly put into their individual interpretations of the brief. Choosing a winner was a difficult but rewarding job.” – Simon Hodges - Spectrum Noir “
- Our decision to convert our initial 4 containers into store, office, shop and cafe was a rather ‘tall order’ however the staff and students, did not hesitate in taking on the challenge. This included joinery, electrical, plumbing, design, which in reality is a major operation as no blueprint or master plan existed. If this project helps to build the work ethic and awareness of these students we will be delighted.” – Adrian Fisher - Rooted in Hull Smile has worked on a number of projects with students from different departments across Hull College and we have been consistently impressed with the enthusiasm and dedication they demonstrate. Smile has proposed a number of real life community challenges faced by local charities to Hull College students and they have worked hard to produce solutions.
- An outstanding example is the recent Hull Street Angels Trinity Dry Bar. This local charity works hard to keep people safe in Hull city centre on Friday and Saturday nights by offering refreshments and a safe place to hydrate. They were in need of a new, eye-catching design for their pop-up dry bar and Smile went to Hull College graphic design students for help! Smile provided the context, public safety/fundraising considerations and linked them with local design agency, Umber Creative, to receive practical support and printing services. “The end result is brilliant – the dry bar fits in with the local nightscape and feels like it’s part of a night out, whilst simultaneously promoting responsible drinking. The work the students produced was well thought out and inspired.” – Nick Middleton - Smile Foundation WHOAREOUR EMPLOYERS? “
