Gateway and Pathways
What are Gateway and Pathways courses?
We welcome students from all walks of life and have courses specifically designed for those who may need some additional support in their learning.
Our Gateway courses are for students with moderate learning difficulties or disabilities, or for those who benefit from additional support. These programmes are ideal for those who may need some pastoral support or for those unsure of the direction they want to take with their studies. Our Additional Learning Support (ALS) staff are here to assist you through college and help you to achieve your potential.
Pathways courses are for students who, for many reason, have not gained GCSEs. Perhaps you need to boost your confidence after a challenging time at school or maybe you just needs some supported learning to help put you back on track to achieve your goals. Pathways courses are practical and fun and could be your stepping stone to success.
