> How we do it

The learning journey

On entry to our programme our initial goal is to try and support a learner back into mainstream education.

For some however this is not achievable and we are structured to provide a pathway from year 8 through to year 13.

Personalised curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to be both challenging and engaging with Functional Skills and PSHE included daily. 

 

At it's heart is the vocational element which acts as the 'hook' for our learners. We offer a broad range of vocational qualifications allowing personalised learning.

Functional Skills & PSHE

All learners have a minimum 40 minutes Maths or English per day along with 40 minutes PSHE.

We see the development of each learners capabilities in Maths, English and PSHE, essential to their progression.

 

Enrichment

We embed enrichment throughout the curriculum. To ensure that enrichment activities are interactive and challenge learners to use old concepts in new ways we use external speakers, community police, community nurses, careers guidance to name but a few.

Reward Scheme

Our REACH reward scheme incentivises learners to be READY, ENGAGED, ACTIVE, CREATIVE, and HEROIC by awarding points every lesson.

Learners can achieve weekly 'Ambassador' status and those that maintain this status for the half term obtain a choice of rewards.

 

Attendance & Reporting

We use Collaborative Learning Manager (CLM) which is a web-based MIS specially designed with alternative provision mind that enables referrers to directly access attendance and progress information for their learners in real time.

We conduct termly reviews and report on lesson contribution, progress, behaviour, and attendance. We hold parents' evenings twice yearly and communicate regularly with parents and carers.

> Life After School

 

Progression

Progression is key to our success. We are dedicated to this goal and aim to provide all learners with improved life skills, career pathways and positive progression either with re-integration back in to mainstream school or on to post-16 education, or further training.

To enable this we provide advice, guidance and mentoring throughout, but with special emphasis on our Year 11 learners where we assist with college applications and work experience placements.

 

For those not ready to take the next step we provide a transition programme called ‘Life After School’ and a Level 2 based ‘Sixth Form’.

Progression

Nearly all of our learners progress back into school, on to college, or into further training....

NEET to EET Programme

The transition from school to college or school to an apprenticeship can be challenging for a number of year 11 learners. Some are simply not ready for this next step. The 'Life After School' programme supports these vulnerable learners at the end of year 11 for a period of up to 24 weeks.

The programme includes:

> Dedicated support worker

> Access to a range of resources

> Training modules

> 60 hours support over 24 weeks

> Learner bursary of £100

> Work experience and placements

The cost of the 24 week programme to school is from £750 per learner

Sixth Form

Our sixth form focuses on preparing learners for progression onto level 3 courses. The programme is a minimum of 16 hours per week, containing 2 on-site days, one home study day and two days volunteering or on work placement.

We offer a range of BTEC Level 2 qualifications including BTEC Firsts which act as a natural progression from our Level 1 pre-16 programmes.

> Refer a Learner

Our process

As an alternative provision we use our vocational programmes, and teaching style, as the 'hook' for our learners. We therefore invite all prospective learners, and their key workers, to visit their nearest centre to meet the team, discuss appropriate programmes, and sample lessons.

 

Appropriate referrals form a key component of our delivery.

Our referral process can be broken down into 3 steps.

Visit us

There is no better way for a young person to understand how we work than to visit us and see our programmes being delivered. This gives key workers the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the learning journey should a start be agreed.

Ahead of a visit why not view our Video and download our Prospectus.

Choose your nearest Centre and contact the Centre Manager to arrange a convenient time.

 

Complete a Referral form

Where a referral has been agreed our online referral form provides a safe and accessible (SSL protocol and WCAG 2.1 Compliant) way of transferring key information about the Learner to our Centre Manager.

 

Once received we can agree a start date.

Start learning

When starting any of our programmes learners, as part of the induction process, are given a 'Learner Journey' booklet which tracks their entire journey with us.

Progress, achievements, feedback, goals and objectives, are just some of the elements contained within the booklet.

 

The 'Learner Journey' enables parents, carers, key workers, schools, and of course learners, to keep up to date and informed of their progress.
