Our Learning for Life and Work curriculum aims to develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes students need to succeed in life and work. It is an interdisciplinary approach that integrates subjects such as Personal Development, Citizenship, Employability, (and Home Economics).

Learning for Life & Work Department Information

Here are some of the key skills and attributes that our students are expected to develop through Learning for Life and Work:


1. Personal Development:

Students are encouraged to develop a positive self-image, self-awareness, and self-confidence. They learn to set goals, manage their time effectively, and develop healthy relationships.


2. Citizenship:

Students learn about their rights and responsibilities as citizens, and how to participate actively in their communities. They learn to appreciate diversity and to respect the views and beliefs of others.


3. Employability:

Students develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to enter and succeed in the world of work. They learn about the job market, the application process, and how to develop and present themselves in a professional manner.

Overall, Learning for Life and Work aims to equip students with the skills and attributes they need to succeed in life and work, and to become responsible and active citizens.


Qualifications / levels offered:

At Level 2 we offer the Prince’s Trust Certificate in Personal Development and Employability Skills.
