Post-16 Study Programmes
The purpose of a Study Programme is to provide a personalised curriculum that meets the needs of the individual.
A study Programme has several elements that are provided at Edgbarrow Sixth Form.
- Level 3 Qualifications – a balanced programme of qualifications that support students to reach the next stage of their education or allow them to begin a career. At Edgbarrow we offer a range of academic and vocational qualifications. Generally, students are expected to study for the equivalent of 3 A-Levels. There is also a Level 2 qualification involving Travel and Tourism, IT and Retail Business which also includes a day of work experience.
- High-Quality Work Experience – purposeful, substantial and supervised placements. A relevant placement should support the students’ studies and broaden their understanding. Students are required to complete 30 hours’ work experience during Year 12.
- Maths and English – Students are required to continue to study Maths and English until they have achieved at least a grade 4 at GCSE level.
- Other Activities include enrichment programmes, sport, dramatic productions, Duke of Edinburgh, pastoral sessions and supervised study.
It is important that students recognise that Post-16 education is about more than just the qualifications they achieve, and the Edgbarrow Sixth Form team will track and support all elements of a Study Programme.
