If you are new to Fircroft, or returning to learning, we strongly recommend Gateway to Learning as a starting point. The course gives you the opportunity to think about what you want to achieve educationally or at work, and then set out a route to achieving your goals.

The course gives you the space and time to think through what your next steps are, with our support. As part of the course, you will complete an assessment of your literacy and numeracy levels (if you haven’t already done this). This will help us guide you on to the right type/level of courses to make sure you get the most out of your learning experience.

Planning Your Learning

Choosing the right course will help you get the most out of studying at Fircroft College. We offer one-to-one information, advice and guidance (IAG) to help you plan a personal programme of learning. We will look at what aims and goals you may have, your previous qualifications and experience, and what you want to achieve by studying at Fircroft. We will then plan a suitable programme of learning with you.
