HOW WILL MY LEARNING BE ASSESSED?

In Key Stage 3 assessments will take form of practical tasks which are designed to inform future students how to be a successful and valued member of society. There will be opportunity for students to present their ideas in order to develop confidence in speaking to both peers and adults.

During Key Stage 4 your Record of Achievement portfolio, which includes your Personal Statement and your Curriculum Vitae, will be seen by colleges or your future employer.

WHAT WILL I GAIN FROM STUDYING THIS COURSE?

The skills and knowledge that you gain in Personal Development are all chosen because they will help your learning in other subjects and prepare you for life after leaving school. You will learn practical life skills, from relationships to career choices. You will also learn how to debate and listen to others.  This subject will support and guide you through Key Stage 4 and help you with those big decisions you will be making about your future.
