Where can it lead?
Students would normally progress through the levels until they reach entry 3 when they will have the opportunity to progress on to a vocational course at entry level or level 1. Alternatively they can continue to consolidate their English Language skills at level 1 and level 2 enabling them to enter a vocational course at a higher level.
