For all current work skills, supported internships, level 1 & 2 students

INTERNAL PROGRESSION

Internal Progression has started for all current students studying work skills, supported internships, level 1 & level 2 at St Vincent College.

Internal progression is a term we use to talk about students staying on at college and progressing to a new level. For example, if you are currently studying a Level 1 course you could progress to a Level 2 course.

It’s an exciting time as we start to talk, think and plan your next academic year of study. Staying on at college and gaining higher qualifications can enhance and widen your opportunities when leaving St Vincent College.

We have already started to roll out the process, you should have received an email, don’t forget to email lmoore@stvincent.ac.uk to get your place at the college for another year.
