Level 2 Course

Sackville School Level 2 Access course

This is a new transitional course enabling students to develop highly desirable transferable skills in addition to improving confidence in their own abilities and subject knowledge.

Studying our level 2 access course gives you the opportunity to gain the qualifications that you need to progress your career and your educational aspirations.

Sackville School GCSE Maths and English resit taught courses plus Level 2 Access course

Our popular and innovative level 2 access course is for students who have not gained English and/or Maths GCSE at grade 4 or above. This one year course aims to give students the opportunity to gain core qualifications in addition to achieving additional GCSE equivalent level qualifications. This level 2 programme of study  aims to set students up to enter a level 3 college course or  apprenticeship. In some cases students may progress on to a level 3 Btec or A levels programme of study on successful completion of the one year level 2 course.

In addition to dedicated English and maths GCSE tuition, the Level 2 Access course includes:

Lessons in Financial Education (LiFE)

LiFE gives students an online financial education on a ‘learning by doing’ basis looking at personal finances, money management and financial careers through accessible online learning.

This qualification equips you with the knowledge to cope confidently and effectively with basic financial encounters you are likely to meet. You will develop knowledge and understanding of spending and how to become competent at managing your own money. You will also explore various careers within the financial services industry.

Certificate of Personal Effectiveness Level 2 (COPE)

CoPE enables students to develop and demonstrate a range of personal, key and employability skills, broaden their experience and manage their learning in a variety of real-life contexts.

Students will complete a number of challenges which help them produce a portfolio of evidence, rather than an examination, to demonstrate their achievements. Students use their portfolio to present their work and its journey to prospective employers or further education institutions.

Child Development Level 2 Vocational one year course (optional)

Students can also opt to study a level 2 vocational Child Development course (optional) as an additional qualification – link to course.

Work Experience/Volunteering

Alongside the learning pathway students would be expected to carry out either a work experience placement or a number of hours volunteering to complement their programme of study.

Options on completion of the Level 2 Access course:

  • Progress to Level 3 courses at Sackville. (This is possible if at least five Level 2 grades have been gained at grades 9 – 4).
  • Progress to other level 2/3 courses at an alternative institution.
  • Progress into apprenticeships or employment.

Students will be supported by the Futures Leader in seeking suitable next steps once the course is completed.
