Future Pathways

Subject Teacher is Mr Chapman jchapman@st-pauls.leicester.sch.uk

Future Pathways introduces students to the world of vocational learning; nurturing life skills whilst gaining a wide range of vocational qualifications.  The course is a bespoke programme of study designed to meet the very complex needs of some of our learners in school and outside of school.

Year 9 – Students study the RHS Introductory Level 1 programme and BTEC Horticulture Level 2 qualification.   This is a mixture of theory and practical work assessed through on-going practical work.

Year 10 – BTEC Tech Award in Enterprise Level 1 / Level 2 supports learners to develop skills in market research, planning, promotion and finance as well as problem solving and time management.  They will develop their own small enterprise as part of the course.  This is a mix of coursework and an exam.

Year 11 – BTEC Animal Care Level 1 / 2 qualification requires learners to study animal health and to learn safe handling skills. Again this is a mixture of theory and practical work where students will meet and learn to look after a variety of different animals.  This is assessed by on-going coursework and a short exam.

 

Years 10 & 11 also attend Leicester College one day a week to study two of the following courses: Hairdressing, Media, Engineering, Construction or Catering.
