As part of the Post 16 curriculum, all students attend Walsall College one morning per week to access V6 Preparation Course.
The course is modular based and as the title suggest, it is a preparation for young people who want to move onto college upon leaving school. Modules include a Community Project, an Enterprise Project and a project about starting college itself.
This part of the curriculum provides them with not only access to the projects above, but college life as a whole.
