As part of the curriculum offer, each student will complete a long-term work experience placement. Students are made ready for this through the units of work on Employability, which are part of the PSHE GCSE.
Students will begin the work experience when they feel ready to take on this challenge and are supported by their form tutors who are all Intervention Mentors. The role of the Intervention Mentor is a crucial one in assisting the student’s journey through the Post 16 provision to adulthood. The intervention Mentor, will take part in both social and academic work with the student and will visit them in their work placement to ensure they are coping well and to help them succeed.
