Years @Franklin: Our New Extended Provision

New for 2021 our extended provision!

Franklin Sixth Form College, the best provider in the region for student achievement with outstanding support for students, are pleased to announce an incredible offer for supporting students who may need a little extra time due to disrupted schooling because of COVID-19. 
We have made the decision to extend our provision by adding courses to our fantastic Level 2 programme. This is to support students who may need an extra year to ensure the best level 3 outcomes and so they can maximise their academic potential with us. We are therefore offering a diversified provision by offering 3 years of study at Franklin. The courses now on offer as part of our Level 2 programme include Travel & Tourism, Public Services, Business Studies, Creative Media, IT & Computing and Health & Social Care. You can find out more information about all of these courses below. 
We are also pleased to be providing students with the opportunity to retake GCSE English or Maths or both, alongside one of our fantastic Level 2 courses during their first year. We hope that by offering this new extended provision this will fully support students who want to progress to Higher Education, Higher level Apprenticeships or straight into Employment. Studying for three years at Franklin Sixth Form College will also support students to achieve the very best grades at the end of a 3 year programme.
