The emphasis is on working as a group in all core modules, which allows students to gain credits in personal and social development (PSD) and obtain a relevant certificate upon completion. In addition to the Wednesday Group B, there are alternative groups on Tuesday and Thursday.
Assessment is through a portfolio created over the second semester from February to July.
Although there is no qualification attached to Semester One, students who complete it successfully can progress to Semester Two where they have the opportunity to gain credits in 'Personal and Social Development' (PSD), an Edexcel qualification at Entry 3 level.
