The Honours Programme is the programme for students who aspire to secure a place at universities such as the prestigious Russell Group, high-level employment or an apprenticeship.
The Russell Group represents 24 leading UK universities that maintain the very best research, outstanding teaching and learning and have unrivalled links with businesses and the public sector.
The programme is delivered in 4 5-week blocks throughout the first year of the Level 3 qualification. Students will learn academic skills, network with industry experts and academics, gain hands-on experience in their chosen field, and receive bespoke support to help them achieve their goals. After each block, students will reflect on what they have learnt and will come away with a unique award that will make them stand out in any application.
The honours programme is split into four pathways:
Students will have specialist academic support from teachers, as well as bringing in co-curricular activities to support learning outside of the classroom. Students on this strand will be aiming towards, or have the potential to attend Russell Group Universities, and will be accessible by students starting any Level 3 course.
This strand is aimed at students whose future career and study aspirations are focussed around STEM. It will highlight the non-traditional routes available, and provide them with the opportunity to increase their wider learning and meet and learn from industry experts.
This strand is aimed at students whose future career and study aspirations will lead them towards leadership roles. Co-curricular support will focus on training in leadership skills, critical thinking and mentoring from alumni and leaders in the community.
This strand is aimed at those who want to pursue a creative career or future study. Opportunities will allow learners to use their skills outside of the classroom, as well as visiting galleries, performances and meeting professional creatives.
This strand is aimed at students whose future career and study aspirations lie in the humanities, social sciences, and liberal arts. Students will participate in workshops, network with industry experts, and attend lectures and seminars.
We have additional programmes that can help you hone the skills and get you ready for university. If you would like to support someone on the programme, visit Support Corner for useful resources.
Throughout the academic year, there will be opportunities for students to engage in Critical Thinking workshops designed to hone skills for successful academic study. These skills include logical reasoning, the ability to think analytically, to evaluate others’ arguments and to develop your own.
A series of super-curricular activities throughout the academic year to encourage our learners to realise their full potential. All students studying a Level 3 qualification will have the chance to listen to guest speakers, attend workshops, go to careers fairs, and enjoy trips and residentials.
A 3-week programme for our final year students to make sure they are prepared for university life! Students will obtain skills such as budgeting, understand what to do on results day, and learn about processes such as Clearing.
