Pathway 1: Post 16 @ Wrotham
Post 16 @ Wrotham is a vital step on the pathway towards the next steps of a students' journey into further learning, adulthood, independent living and employment. With a key focus on personal development as well as academic achievement, this pathway is a stepping stone to further progression.
The intent of this pathway is to prepare the students' for their next steps in their learning journey. Based at the Wrotham site, this cohort of students study a broad and balanced curriculum that is linked to the preparing for adulthood pathways (further information can be found here on the pathways).
The implementation of the curriculum allows students to achieve the qualifications they need for the next steps in their learning journey as well as developing them personally and socially. English and mathematics are studied at the appropriate level ranging from Entry 3 to GCSE. Their main qualification is the ASDAN Personal and Social Development qualification at various levels and sizes inline with Grange Parks' personalised approach. Complementing the core curriculum and PSD qualification are a wide range of short courses that students undertake. These really support the independence and life skills development of the students, as they may study up to 12 of these courses in an academic year.
This provide opportunities for students to experience different types of employment and learn employable skills.
Present placements include: McDonalds, Holiday Inn, Buttercup Goat Sanctuary, Holywell Care Home, Communigrow, Trosley Farm, Grange Park (Stansted provision) and Shears Green Primary School.
The next steps for students on this pathway is varied and the vast majority of students transition onto the Post 16 @ College pathway within one academic year. Other transitions include traineeships, support living, supported internships and post 19 provisions. Last academic year 100% of the students on this pathway progressed onto a positive destination.
