From September 2022, Expanse Learning Wigan School will be offering Construction and Land-based Studies courses as part of our vocational education programmes to wider schools.

Pupils in KS4 will have the opportunity to follow vocational courses in Construction and Land-based Studies from our new vocational skills centre based at our existing school site in Wigan.

The qualifications we deliver meet the requirements for attracting GCSE points (9 to 1) and so contribute to the school or academies’ league table positions. Pupils will have the opportunity to achieve a BTEC Level 1 Diploma.

We also offer taster sessions for pupils in year 9 during the spring and summer terms of the 22-23 academic year.
