College pathways for home educated students  

Elective Home Education virtual event

College pathways for home educated students  

A series of informative new virtual events, designed for home schooled students, will shed light on the range of educational opportunities available through The Cornwall College Group (TCCG).  

The two online events, taking place on the evening of March 13th and then again on May 9th, will give both students and parents the opportunity to learn more about the exciting Elective Home Education programmes, available at TCCG campuses across Cornwall and Devon.  

Corporate Lead for EHE, David Atkinson-Beaumont said: “We have seen fantastic success with our EHE programme this academic year and we’re really excited to roll out the offer again for September.” 

David continued: “Our focus is to provide home educated learners with access to industry specialist equipment and staff, enhancing their home education with a full college qualification. 

“We’re looking for learners who would usually be in Year 11, and who are passionate about a subject that we have on offer at either our Cornwall College campuses in St Austell and Camborne, our Duchy College Rosewarne and Stoke Climsland campuses, Falmouth Marine School or Bicton College. Our goal is to be an enriching addition to their education.” 

TCCG’s comprehensive Elective Home Education programmes are designed to meet the unique needs of home educators, providing both a supportive and aspirational vocational pathway for students.  

The tailored provision covers a range of vocational courses including Animal Care, Art & Design, Childcare, Engineering, Games Design, Hair & Beauty, Hospitality & Catering and Sport.  

Enrolled students are also able to enjoy full access to college facilities, including Learning Resource Centres and career education advice & guidance.   

With personalised progress tracking, the programmes create a seamless transition into further education, apprenticeships and employment, aligning with each student’s unique career goals and ambitions.
