Personal development is designed to benefit the personal growth of our learners and has been made up of three units: Safeguarding, Living in modern Britain, and ePASS.
The safeguarding unit contains content on PREVENT, Country lines, Gangs, Knife crime, and Sexual Harassment.
Learners will be afforded the chance to understand the most pressing risks to our community’s safety.
The unit also features an overarching narrative that builds awareness of e-safety, reflecting the college’s ‘Be aware, connect with care’ message.
The unit will conclude with a learner assessment, which tests their understanding of all covered topics.
Living in modern Britain
Both living in modern Britain and ePASS are sequenced more in line with an interleaving curriculum to better the learner’s needs and provide variety. These topics aim to provide an understanding of financial literacy, inclusivity, and fake news; while also working with our students to expand their employability skills.
All 16-19 full-time study programme learners will receive a one-hour PD session per week, alongside a 1:1 progress review with a tutor each half-term.
Progress reviews ensure learners stay on track in all elements of their study programme and encourage them to aim high in their studies.
IAG for progression and next destination is included in their yearly plan, where academic tutors and progress tutors provide learners with the information they require to make decisions about their next steps.
