This is an engaging one year course that develops a range of transferable skills, delivered through a historical context. During the course you will gain skills relating to effective essay writing, exam techniques and the ability to analyse, debate and evaluate information. The course focuses on three key modules, which are ‘Media Through Time’, ‘Germany in 1919-1945’ and the Historical Enquiry, during which you will analyse the history of Berry Pomeroy Castle.
“I joined the College to study GCSEs, including Chemistry, English and Maths. I wanted to work in veterinary science, so I then progressed to a range of science-based A Levels, and after gaining A grades in all subjects, I was able to continue onto a Veterinary Science degree at Cambridge University. I can now look forward to a career in something I’m passionate about, and I can’t wait to get started.”James Hawkesby
