Provision for young adults.
Not everyone is college ready at 16.
The Willows post 16 began its journey in September 2019. Post 16 is an extension of the Willows School and has the same ethos, values and “can do” attitude.
We started September 2019 with 12 MLD students in Year 12 and expect to have up to 20 students, by September 2021, throughout years 12, 13 and 14.
Our aim is to provide a bridge from school to college apprenticeship or employment.
Our Curriculum includes
PSHE, PSD, 1 –1 individual tutorials,
Skills for Life,
Travel Training, Road Safety,
D of E
Entry level Functional skills,
The Post 16 curriculum is diverse and forward looking, developing knowledge and skills which promote and enhance independence, experience, interests, relationships, further education, training and employment.
A holistic approach when considering the next educational stage highlights, not only on the educational needs but also a focus on social, emotional needs and developing independence, confidence and self esteem. Life skills and applying their learning to everyday life is at the core of our curriculum. It compliments a range of awards and qualifications with a diverse and rich timetable.
