The Further Education department provides for students between 16 – 19 years. They follow a curriculum which provides continuing education for them to further develop their skills, knowledge, understanding and maturity to allow them to enter adult life and take full advantage of the many and varied opportunities available.
Significant emphasis is given to the further extension of vocational skills, life skills and key skills already developed in earlier Key Stages in order to prepare students for future placements upon leaving school. The curriculum provides opportunities to consolidate and generalise these skills in functional settings, which utilise the wider community wherever possible.
F.E pupils complete AQA accreditation linked to their learning each year. Students access accreditation units that are appropriate to their specific needs. Therefore some students access Sensory modules of accreditation. Whilst working in the outdoors students are currently working towards the John Muir Award.
F.E students take part in a wealth of learning out in the community. Students have enjoyed developing their independence and money skills whilst using local shops to locate items, read prices, use self checkouts and handle money. A group of students have also taken part in weekly triking sessions at Salt Ayre.
Currently some students access Dallam School to take part in weekly Rebound therapy sessions. These sessions are supported by 6th form students as part of their sports leaders award.
Students practise daily living skills in our Training Room, taking part in everyday tasks such as hoovering, cleaning and making the bed. The teacher with responsibility for Careers Education is Rebecca Parker. She can be contacted on the school number or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
