SLQ's Personal Skills Programme - Post 16 will be piloted in 2020/21. The Personal Skills Programme (PSP) - Post 16 is a learning programme that allows learners to develop the skills and behaviours needed to be better prepared for their next step in education or employment.
The programme consists of accredited awards for post 16 students and provides resources and support for delivery. The programme consist of two awards – The Skills Pathfinder Award and the Skills Reflection Award.
The Skills Pathfinder Award
|Learners identify what they want to achieve in their potential career journey and plan the development of the personal skills needed to accomplish this.|
|The Skills Reflection Award||Learners reflect on their development of personals skills throughout their educational journey and the value it has brought them and how these skills can assist them and prepare them for further education/employment.|
Delivering the programme
The awards can be delivered either face to face or as an online programme and each award consists of five guided learning hours. (The online programme enables the awards to be delivered remotely if required due to Covid-19 restrictions) .The awards can be delivered through existing timetabled sessions, enrichment days, study time, or tutor time. The awards have the flexibility to be delivered across an entire year group or to individual focused groups. As part of the PSP, SLQ provides a student facing online booklet with tasks and reflection activities designed to help track learners’ progress and demonstrate their competencies and achievements.
Through five hours of teaching time learners will create an effective portfolio of their abilities, providing evidence of their progression while developing character and personal skills.
