Whilst at WVTC our students will continue to study the core areas of English and Maths.
They will also study Employability skills as part of their core curriculum. This includes skills such as looking for jobs, writing CV’s and developing their interview skills.
In addition, students can study a range of vocational options from the following:
Animal Care, Car Valeting, Childcare, Construction Skills (including Bricklaying, Carpentry and Painting & Decorating), Hair and Beauty, Health and Social Care, Horticulture, Hospitality and Catering, ICT, Motor Vehicle & Cycle Maintenance and PE & Sports Leadership.
All courses enable the students to follow nationally recognised qualifications ranging from Entry Level to Level 2.
We also offer a range of additional courses to supplement the student’s vocational choices. These include: Community Projects, Enterprise, First Aid at Work, Health and Safety in the Workplace, Independent Living Skills & Travel Training.
Finally, one of the most vital parts of the Centre’s curriculum are quality Work Experience Placements. Students may undertake a range of different placements whilst at WVTC that could range from independent positions to small group assignments.
These opportunities could include vocational subject projects, community projects, working within a different department at the centre, linked CLPT schools or EBP WEX organisations. We aim for these placements to be closely related to the student’s vocational pathways however this can’t always be guaranteed.
