Essential Skills

Core Skills Support

Whatever you’re studying, it’s important that you continue to develop your core skills, such as Communication, ICT and Numeracy.

For those that need it, we have additional timetabled sessions which can help you keep on top of these valuable skills.

Referral is often by your Guidance Tutors or a member of staff – but you can refer yourself too. Just email your campus Curriculum Quality Leader, or ask a Student Advisor to put you in contact. Details are at the bottom of this page.

Your Essential Skills (YES) 

The College is committed that every student is equipped with and recognises the value of skills for learning, work and life.  Given that no job is for life, developing transferrable skills is more important than ever! We want to support you to focus on and build YOUR Essential Skills so you can attain the necessary and appropriate level of core and essential skills for future study or employment.

YES is an innovative online application for you to track and reflect upon your skills and personal development. This then provides you with a stronger and more detailed CV and improved articulation to express your personal skills and educational development.
