Our Explorer Courses have been designed to provide learners with the opportunity to try something new in a vocational sector at level 1. These are not new qualifications or units, they have been re-packaged from existing offers. Learners can study these courses as part of an induction programme, or as a bridging course from entry to level 1.
These courses will give learners who are considering a sector-based course a realistic idea of what it would be like to work in the sector. Bite-sized content allows learners to explore the sector before committing to something more substantial. This will include information about the vast opportunities the sector will present but also the challenges, giving learners a real insight into how they may want to develop their career path.
There is an opportunity to pursue qualifications through these Explorer Courses that are fundable for eligible adult learners through the Adult Education Budget.
