|The aim of our non-qualification programmes is to support the wider development of post 16 students by equipping them with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. Students have opportunities to develop employability skills and participate in other activities of value which enable them to progress to become educated citizens. Participation in the non-qualification programmes is recorded and used to support in the writing of student references. |
The following list is not exclusive and other opportunities will be shared with students as and when they occur:
The PSHE programme 2020/21
The Careers programme 2020/21
The Catholic Life & Ethics programme – is delivered by the RE Faculty and offers students the opportunity to study a broad range of contemporary moral issues such as theories of crime and punishment; peace and conflict; medical ethics and its application in everyday decision making. The General RE scheme has been composed to incorporate academic rigour and challenge and is approved by the Archdiocese of Birmingham.
