Post 16

In Post 16 KS5 students follow an individualised timetable approach that is formulated using the Preparation for Adulthood outcomes. Skills Builder is also then used to identify strengths and next steps in relation to the 8 Skills Builder criteria. The structure of the timetable is fluid to allow for extracurricular opportunities to meet the emerging needs. For example, travel training. Students will have the opportunity to take GCSE re-sits or progress on from their previous Functional Skill qualification. Students with particular interests could also re-enroll on to one of our vocational option courses to further expand their qualification portfolio. Any KS5 student has the opportunity to access all qualifications that are on offer in KS4.


The following are elements from the structure of teaching and learning in KS5:
