Enrichment is the additional aspect of provision that complements each course to provide context, deepen understanding and knowledge of subject application to the world of work. Enrichment is a critically important dimension of all courses provided for our sixth form students.
Each A Level/BTEC L3 course will have the following enrichment dimensions:
- At least one subject specific fieldwork visit/activity to support study of the subject. For example, a fieldtrip for geography, an art gallery visit for Art or Art & Design Textiles Drama
- An opportunity to visit a high performing university that offers courses that can be accessed with a Level 3 qualification in the subject being studied eg The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) for students studying A Level Sciences
- Opportunities to work with a local business or industry in which having a Level 3 qualification in the subject could support progression. For example, a local solicitor for students studying any Humanities/facilitating subjects
- The opportunity to hear a speaker who can model or exemplify use of the subject studied to achieve aspirational career progression. For example, at a conference or masterclass
As a result of the enrichment offered in conjunction with each of our sixth form courses, students will experience immersion in their chosen subjects and be empowered to make informed choices about future learning at university or apprenticeship/work related learning progression.
