The aim of the Futures curriculum team is to:
- Celebrate independence, employability and inclusion
- Ensure each young person has maximised opportunity to progress to independent adult lives
- Develop each individual's character so they're ready for their future, building upon their personal strengths and developing their core employability skills needed by our local economy
The Directions programme is designed for students working between Entry Levels 1 and 2 (pre GCSE) and aims to provide them with core employability skills so that they can progress to further learning and/or employment and live independently.
The programme has been developed around the Preparation for Adulthood agenda to promote young people's employability, independence, good health, independent living, friends, relationships and community inclusion.
The course covers a variety of topics. Students will take part projects to enhance their employability, independence, communication, teamworking, social and community action skills and digital ICT skills. Student will develop their understanding of how to access and use community facilities, use transport and improving shopping and budgeting skills.
