Welcome to Post 16
Post 16 is made up of a mixture of year 12, 13 and 14 students. The class is situated on the first floor of the Secondary site.
The Post 16 curriculum helps to prepare students socially, emotionally, intellectually and vocationally for some of the challenges they may face through the period of change and adjustment as they are entering the adult world.
The curriculum is planned over a 3 year cycle using two ASDAN schemes: ‘Towards Independence’ and ‘Personal Progress Qualification’ accompanied by the AQA unit award scheme through the following pathways:
- Independent Living
The learning involved is personalised to meet each individual’s needs and interests. Students will work towards gaining accreditation for all of the units and modules they complete. Within Personal Progress pupils gain credits to achieve an Award, Certificate or Diploma Qualification. This can be continued beyond school as many Further Education Colleges are using the same accreditation system.
As well as covering basic English and Maths functional skills, personal and social development and vocational skills through the curriculum, students will have opportunities to try work experience placements within school and out in the local community, embark on independent travel training (where appropriate) and visit a range of Post 19 provisions. Post 16 have responsibility for running the Rainbow Cafe.
Families with students who are in Post 16 will be starting to think about life beyond school. Jonathan Troy is out Careers and Transitions Adviser who works in school on Tuesdays. Please feel free to contact him anytime.
