Learning For Life
Learning for Life is a two year course followed by Route V students only. There are around 50 in Year 10 and the same in Year 11. The course offers a powerful mix of adventure, self-discovery and learning. There are four lessons per week, two afternoons per week and the new purpose-built Learning for Life centre is open every break and lunch time for students to complete homework, seek advice and mentoring or socialise with other students on their course. These students will work towards accredited AQA units and will build up an E-Portfolio of their work in Learning for Life, which will build on their employability skills, enterprise and prepare them for the world of work.
