We are also particularly pleased with the individual achievements of students in our Learning Support Centres (LSCs). Students took a range of external qualifications appropriate to their personalised learning. These include: BTEC awards, (I)GCSEs, Edexcel Entry Level awards, AQA Maths and English Functional Skills and the ASDAN Personal Development Programme awards.
