Our key steps towards key skills
Our tutoring team support the development of English and Maths skills and re-engage students in their learning. This can be through bespoke project-based work functional skills or using the materials and platforms provided by the commissioning partner. Our tutors all mentor, and so they can provide an appropriately stretching learning environment with flexibility and real- world experiences included. Tutoring is often included alongside mentoring in a support package.
From September 2021 we are delivering NCFE Functional Skills in English and Maths qualifications at Impact HQ.
Personal Development BTEC (SWEET)
We can tutor young people through a Level 1 or Level 2 BTEC in Personal Development through Pearson. The qualification includes work on relationships, finance, health and global citizenship and is an accessible way to blend mentoring with a qualification which is person-centred.
As an approved centre for NCFE qualifications, we can explore with commissioners a range of Level 1 and Level 2 vocational courses. These are for committed young people who are likely to be with us for a year or more. Alongside Functional English and Functional Maths we are initially offering Occupational studies and Sport and Fitness courses. .
Occupational studies is a natural step up from our ASDAN short –course offer. and is an ideal progression for those young people who would like to move forward with their learning about specific vocational areas and turn them into a qualification.
Sport and Fitness courses include the Level 2 Fitness Instructor qualification and vocational courses aimed at those who may be looking to work in the sport and fitness industry
Other courses will follow and you will be able to discuss possibilities with us prior to making a referral
