At Post 16 we will offer students a choice of flexible pathways. The Academy will work with students to select the most appropriate pathway for them, based on their performance at GCSE and their career aspirations.
The Level 3 Programme
The majority of post 16 students at the Academy will follow a Level 3 programme, which means they will have passed a minimum of 5 GCSEs, including English and Maths, at grades A* to C.
The 3 pathways below are indicative of our flexible approach to meeting the needs and aspirations of students.
Pathway A: For students wishing to study engineering at university or pursue an advanced apprenticeship. All students will study a smaller¬†engineering qualification and up to 3 A-levels.
Pathway B: For learners wishing to study engineering combined with another subject at university, pursue an apprenticeship or go into Further Education. On this pathway the students will study a larger¬†engineering qualification and up to¬†1 A-level.
Pathway C: This route is for students who want to follow an A-level only programme, with a focus on STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
WMG Academy will offer the following A-level subjects:-
- Art & Design
- Computer Science
- Further Maths
- Product Design
