Home-schooled students are being invited to Bournville College to find out how they can fulfil their potential within an academic environment.
The Longbridge town centre-based college, which is part of South & City College Birmingham, is holding this special information evening for home-educated 14 and 15 year olds and their parents and carers.
Aimed at youngsters starting year 10 and year 11 in September, the session will give learners the opportunity to speak to staff and get advice on how they can progress their education within the college, be it through taking the core GCSEs of English, maths and science or through a vocational qualification.
Anna-Marie Wood, Head of Faculty for Higher Education and Academic Studies at South and City College, says “We have successfully re-integrated home-educated 14 and 15 year olds for a number of years and due to the high demand across the region we have taken the step to open up two GCSE groups, one for year 10 and one for year 11 which are specifically designed to help students gain the key qualifications in English, maths and science.
“In addition to the core GCSE courses, we are able to offer a fantastic variety of vocational qualifications in areas such as hairdressing, hospitality, childcare, mechanics and engineering.”
