  • A qualification such as BTEC Extended Diploma
  • Meaningful work experience or preparation for work
  • English and maths, if you don't already have GCSE grade 9-4 (A*-C) in English and maths (Grade 4 or above)

Where can I progress to?

This is potentially a three year programme dependant on student's readiness to enter into the Military.  Some students enter into the military at this point.  Those who are not quite ready can progress onto Level 3 Diploma in Military preparation for a further year.  If they are still not ready they can then go onto the extended Diploma.  All courses carry UCAS points.
