What we offer Young People in Years 10 and 11

On admission to Brunel College students will undertake our full induction process to ensure we have robust information about the young person’s cognitive, social and emotional and academic needs and ability. This data is then analysed, and a full review of their current curriculum is undertaken to identify strengths and any missed opportunities to make progress. 

To ensure the young person has increased chances of success we personalise a varied curriculum offer for them to meet their individual needs. This is designed with an emphasis on improving literacy and numeracy, sequentially recuperating self-esteem through alternative learning opportunities and best preparing them for post-16 education, employment and/or training. 

Our core academic curriculum offer focuses on English, mathematics and science at qualification levels from Functional Skills through to GCSE’s.  This academic offer is complimented by our broad range of options and vocational experiences and qualifications, targeting specific student requirements and potential post-16 destinations; delivered in conjunction with sector specific; industry recognised qualifications; work placements and vocational engagement activities, including: 

Food & Cookery, Enterprise, Public Services, Health & Social Care, Art & Design Technology, Hair & Beauty, Engineering, Sport & Fitness, Music, Princes Trust ‘Achieve’ Programme

Anchoring this curriculum offer are our holistic therapeutic interventions aimed at aiding personal development, supplemented by our bespoke PSHE, SMSC and citizenship programme.
