Within the vocational studies suite the pupils have the option of studying Health and Social Care and Children’s Play Learning and Development at KS4 and KS5. We aspire to develop pupils understanding of Health and Social Care and Children’s Play Learning and Development to enable them to pursue potential careers ranging from teaching, nursing, social care, public services and adult care.
Through our broad curriculum our pupils develop a wide understanding of how life and life circumstances affect us all. Learners foster a secure knowledge of needs of a diverse society and the difficulties faced by different groups within that society, whilst considering the growth and development of all.
In lessons, pupils focus on four core strands of the vocational suite; the impact of circumstances on personal development and growth, the importance of social connection on health and development, the impact of daily life on emotional health and the development of theory behind intellectual development.
Our curriculum encourages pupils to investigate equality and diversity in these contexts.
