MOVING ON is our Programme of Study course sub-contracted through Cornwall Adult Education. It has been created to deliver a programme of activities for young people 15 – 18 (25 if they have an EHCP) who are looking for an alternative way of studying. This course is particularly suitable for young people who have high anxiety, communication issues, low self-esteem and confidence. The course is delivered in small groups, normally no more than 10 students at a time and covers a wide range of skills and activities. This allows us to places each individual at the centre of their learning experience, working alongside experienced tutors, each young person is helped to fulfil their potential and explore next steps in a very supportive environment. During their time on the course young people will work towards a variety of qualifications, take part in activities to support individual living skills, plan trips and visits, have the opportunity to do work experience, make friends and become a more confident and rounded person.
Functional skills in maths and English all levels catered for from E1 through to L2. Individual 1:1 help given to those that need it. Embedding skills in cooking, budgeting and planning for days out as part of delivering these qualifications. Half a day a week for each subject.
OCR Life and living Skills covers a number of different units depending on the needs and interests of the student, these can incorporated independent living skills, craft / art work, exhibiting work, numeracy units if the functional skills is not appropriate to needs, work experience units, planning events and days out. Units are too many to name all of them. Students can pick from a menu to create an individualised programme.
