Level 3 Foundation Programme

Our college wants all young people to have the opportunity to gain the skills and experiences they need to thrive. Education can be a real catalyst for that and King Edward’s Level 3 Foundation Programme (L3FP) offers students the chance to re-launch their ambitions.

Students enrolled in the L3FP have the opportunity to enhance their level two portfolio. L3FP students study four Level 2 qualifications, which include both vocational courses and GCSE options. The successful completion of this programme allows students the chance to gain access to an appropriate Level 3 study programme including the opportunity to study a range of A Levels and Vocational qualifications.

In recent years our teachers have supported students to gain some of the highest pass rates for Level 2 re-takes across the country. We are skilled at offering students the support and learning experiences they need to progress.

Our current L3FP offer includes GCSE and vocational options in: GCSE English, Mathematics, Film Studies, Astronomy, Sociology.

BTEC First Award in Applied Science, BTEC Diploma in Leadership through Sport, Graphic Design, Heath & Social Care and Higher Project.

Please note the L3FP subject offer is reviewed annually. Entry requirements for the L3FP are at least two Grade 4s and one Grade 3 at Level 2. Places will be offered following publication of GCSE results and after discussions with Senior Staff to assess individual potential for further study.
