Owl class is part of the Post 16 cohort and in this class, learners will work towards completing their Entry Level Functional Skills qualifications in English, Maths and ICT. Functional Skills are nationally recognised qualifications that support learners to move onto further education provisions. In this class, learners will develop their skills, knowledge, and experience to become as independent as possible. Learners will attend sessions at St. Andrew’s café and individualised work experience that is heavily linked to our students’ future aspirations. Alongside this, learners will work towards completing the Duke of Edinburgh award and will work towards completing the four sections of the DofE: Physical, Volunteering, Skills, and Expedition. Here, learners will increase their confidence, resilience and team building skills which will in turn empower our students to become ready for adulthood. Our trained and highly skilled team will support learners in enabling them to manage and support their emotional regulation, use of effective communication and independent skills to achieve both academically and personally.
Exciting moments from Owl will appear in this space, including any pictures or videos we take. Please keep checking in, in order to see what the learners have been up to!
