This elective will be open to all students who demonstrate a passion for public speaking. You will prove this by submitting a paragraph of writing that demonstrates your ability and introduces us to the power of your convictions. You will choose a subject that means a lot to you and try to convey this passion in the most creative way you can.
When you can inspire through the power of your own words, the sky is the limit. You may pursue a career in politics or inspirational speaking. Alternatively, most careers require you to present to management or clients at some stage. Having the ability to speak in front of others is a very desirable skill. The course will inspire you to think differently about the world whilst developing basic employability skills for any career.
Our Elective Programme is designed to help you develop your gifts and interests as part of an enhanced level 3 programme. We will help you realise your potential by nurturing your talent and preparing you for study at the most prestigious universities or for progression to competitive higher-level apprenticeships. Your options range from our Honours Programme, which might include following a fourth A level, to specialist Futures Programmes that will support your career goals.
The college has a number of teams that play as part of the Association of College’s league and are very competitive each year. We play games on a Wednesday afternoon, so this will make up part of your time-table.
