It’s ‘school’, but not as you know it…
Alongside your traditional GCSE curriculum you study technical qualifications that give you the skills employers are looking for in their future workforce – how do we know this?
Because the employers themselves have helped us shape the curriculum, and are hands-on in daily college life providing projects for our students along with masterclasses and the opportunities to visit them and see first-hand where you could be working. Nowhere else provides you with these opportunities at age 13.
Students will build knowledge and understanding of engineering through…
- Contributing to a series of industry-led ‘major projects’ in projects teams
- Visiting partner organisations to gain firsthand experience of the engineering world
- Partnering with the engineering faculty at the University of Hull
- Working with mentors from industry and education
Students will develop life skills, independence and knowledge through…
- Building a record of academic and professional achievement
- Courses in business enterprise and entrepreneurship, global and environmental awareness
- Leading and taking part in enrichment activities
- Taking part in RE, PSCHE (Leadership and Personal Development), citizenship and sports activities
- Receiving the very best in careers education
Our curriculum will enable students to develop the skills that are highly sought after by universities and employers today:
- Creativity and ingenuity
- Enquiry and analysis
- Problem-solving and resilience
- Self-management and organisation
- Teamwork and collaboration
- Technological confidence and technical skills
The focus on these attributes and capacities in the curriculum ensure our students develop the ‘character’ to succeed in the modern world.
