Prospect School 16-19 Programme of Study

Prospect School 16-19 Programme of Study

DfE guidance states that “16 to 19 study programmes are designed to provide students with a structured and challenging learning programme that supports their development and progression in line with their career plans.” In designing the Programme of Study at Prospect School for 16-19 we have taken this guidance into account.

Study programmes will be individually tailored for each student, and will be made up of the following four elements (as appropriate):

  • Substantial academic, applied or vocational qualifications that stretch students and link clearly to training, employment and/or higher education
  • English and Maths where students have not yet achieved a GCSE Grade 4 (reformed grading) or Grade C (legacy grading);
  • Work experience to give young people the opportunity to develop their career choices and to apply their skills in real working conditions;
  • Other non-qualification activity to develop students’ character, skills, attitudes and confidence, and to support progression
    • All students have the opportunity to participate in/contribute to a range of activities, for example:
      • PIXL Edge;
      • Extended Project Qualification (EPQ);
      • Prospect Parliament and Student Leadership Team;
      • Peer Mentoring;
      • 6th form visits and trips (eg New York);
      • National Citizen service (NCS).
