PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

Personal Development and PSHE education is taught every day at Rowhill and covers a broad curriculum through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work.

  • Pupils are taught and encouraged to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives.
  • Pupils are supported in making effective decisions, positive learning, career choices and in achieving economic wellbeing.  
  • Pupils are provided economic education, which includes topics such as managing your money, debt, interest and tax and student finance, so pupils are prepared for life after school.
  • Pupils are also provided with opportunities to reflect on, clarify their own values and attitudes, and explore the complex and conflicting range of values and attitudes encountered now and in the future.
  • Pupils will also develop inter and intra personal skills allowing them to develop teamwork and personal skills along with key employability skills.
  • PSHE focuses on the child and helps them make informed decisions on their physical and mental health, relationships and emotions.

The Prince’s Trust Achieve programme helps 11 to 19-year-olds develop the skills and confidence they need to reach their goals, through relevant, engaging and informal learning.

The Achieve programme is designed to help young people re-engage with education and support them to achieve their full potential.

Qualification Aim

The Prince’s Trust offers young people the opportunity to achieve a qualification in Personal Development and Employability Skills (PDE) whilst participating in the Achieve programme. The qualification has been developed to recognize the skills and knowledge young people will develop by offering a variety of units linked to the programme.

Intent:

The qualifications recognise a breadth of personal skills, qualities and attitudes valued by employers across a range of sectors, giving the learners the opportunity to: 

  • Develop their own personal growth and engagement in learning
  • Engage in learning that is relevant to them and support their development of personal skills and attributes that are essential for employment and working life
  • Prepare themselves for progression into further education programmes, apprenticeships or other work-based learning
  • Develop their literacy, language and numeracy skills

Implementation:

The Achieve programme curriculum promotes a flexible approach, using relevant, experiential learning to support young people to achieve a range of personal and employability skills and gain qualifications.

Pupils will have two timetabled lessons a week and KS3 will have opportunity to practice new skills offsite.

Impact:

The Prince’s Trust Achieve programme seeks to have a positive impact on:

  • Attainment and reaching educational goals, prepare for life after school and their future.
  • Attendance: becoming motivated and attending school regularly
  • Personal and social development: building confidence, teamwork skills and developing character
