Our extensive programme is designed to assist in the development of transferable skills and qualities necessary to progress to higher education or within employment.
We aim to equip students with the leadership skills to enhance employment and potentially provide students with an insight into possible career progression routes.
All Year 12 students are offered the opportunity and encouraged to undertake a leadership role for a minimum of one lesson per week. In some cases it might be a whole morning or afternoon as some students take the opportunity to arrange their enrichment off site – for example at a local primary school, football training, coaching swimming, volunteering in a charity shop or helping in a local care home.
Some leadership opportunities available to students include:
- PE Teaching Assistants
- Primary school assistant
- Post-16 Press Team
- Social Skills Group Assistant
- School Show Production Team
- Maths Assistant/Mentor
- Personalised Learning Centre Mentor/Assistant
- Tomorrow’s Teachers
- Literacy Ambassador
