Enriched Learning

Overview

CLF Post 16 has a very strong philosophy for Enriched Learning. You are encouraged to embrace every opportunity available to you during your time of study.

Subject teachers¬†also¬†embrace this¬†philosophy¬†and¬†plan a rich calendar of opportunities that take¬†learning outside¬†of the classroom to embed it more strongly.¬†Recent opportunities included¬†the¬†Geography students’¬†week-long¬†field trip to Slapton Sands in South Devon to¬†study coastal erosion and surveying¬†techniques,¬†an opportunity for¬†Physics students¬†to¬†attend¬†a¬†seminar at Bristol¬†University,¬†and¬†a¬†visit to UWE for¬†Health and Social Care students.¬†

The Post 16 teaching staff also work hard to welcome visitors into the classroom too, in order to bring a different perspective or provide a link to careers in a particular field. 

Alongside this, the CLF Post 16 also provides a full range of alternative qualifications to enrich the life chances of all students. Some great examples of this include: 

  • Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme¬†
  • Engineering Education Scheme
  • Sport Qualification
    • Junior Netball Leader¬†
    • Level 1 Football¬†
    • Officiating¬†Qualifications¬†
    • Level 1 Rugby¬†
  • Level 2 Food and Hygiene for Catering¬†
  • CSCS ‚Äď Construction Skills Certification Scheme¬†
  • Theory Driving Preparation Course ‚ÄĮ¬†

 

Activities that bring students together as a community such as clubs and societies, are another example of enrichment at CLF Post 16. Led by the students themselves, these groups allow students to meet and share a common interest (e.g. sports, debate, film). We also encourage students to apply to set up their own club or society using the application form.

Finally, there are a number of other enrichment opportunities which students may be interested in, including: 

  • Envision ¬†is open to all students and is¬†an inter-school ‘Community Apprentice’ type¬†competition. This¬†exciting¬†programme requires young people to develop the competencies most valued by employers.
  • Micro-Tyco is a month-long challenge that enables participants to practice and learn fundamental business principles in a safe, ‘micro’ environment.
