Personal Growth

You need to be well-prepared for the transition to learning in Higher Education, employment and life in the wider world. Emphasis, therefore, is placed upon both independent and inter-dependent learning and developing your personal skills and qualities.

You will be encouraged to manage your time effectively, and develop your organisational skills. You will have access to purpose-built Post 16 study areas, a Learning Resource Centre, excellent and extensive resources and ICT facilities, including access to the Internet.

The personal development programme encourages business and enterprise skills, team working, leadership and decision making. The professional image and standing of Post 16 students within the Academy and wider community is emphasised through the wearing of business dress.
