This elective will be open to all students who demonstrate a passion for writing creatively. You will prove this by submitting a piece of creative writing (prose, poetry or drama) to support your application.
The skills and knowledge gained from the programme will support students in their application for a creative writing degree course should they wish to follow this route. However, all students will gain valuable transferable skills of writing accurately and creatively, planning and editing their own work and responding to constructive feedback, which will support applications to all degree courses and careers. In addition, the programme will provide students with an outlet for creativity which will stay with them for the rest of their lives!
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.
