As part of the widening out of the curriculum we have introduced Skills for Work courses (SfW).
This year it has seen the introduction of Construction Skills and Hairdressing.
Both these courses have been running for this year.
Next year we will be introducting Rural Skills and Cosmetology (This is not looking at the cosmos as I thought but Beautician skills).
The idea is to get these courses in place as normal options within the whole school curriculum. With equal status to any other course.
Pupils are not removed from other classes to attend an FE college simply because it is not possible in our geographic position. Therefore we had to create a space within the school for this to happen.
