What will your child learn on this course?

The course is structured to be flexible so that it can adapt to the needs of the learners in the group.

Throughout the course students will be expected to complete assessments and project based work so that individual progress can be ascertained. We will also be monitoring the publication of new  qualifications and consider the validity of entry for certain pupils on this pathway.

What will your child need to do to make progress?

Students will need to be organised and able to plan their work. They need to be pro-active in wanting to do everything they can to pass Maths and English. Strong personal resilienceand an ability to try newideas and approaches to learning are crucial attributes to be successful on this course.
