Post 16 Phase
Post 16 Students follow a Level 3 study programme which has a core aim that is either academic or vocational. Study programmes for students involve a minimum of 540 guided learning hours, of which approximately 90% is core curriculum time. The remaining part of the study programme consists of developmental activities such as PSHCE, Work Experience and enrichment activities. Some students study a combination of vocational and academic aims, but their core aim will be determined by the relative proportions of the subjects that they study.
