Welcome to M3. The class teacher is Ms Butcher; the teaching assistants are Ms Jarvis and Ms Loasby.
In M3 students are preparing to leave school and move into their future. This transition period can be quite a stressful time so we aim to prepare them individually for their chosen progression pathway.
Over the academic year students will have the opportunity to complete Employability qualifications and add to their Personal and Social Development qualifications. There will also be a focus on Health & Safety at Work through the British Safety Council.
Individual programmes are in place to enable students to achieve accreditation from LASER Learning Awards (http://laser-awards.org.uk/) in areas of personal interest through option choices. Identified students also take part in Supported Internship programmes designed to enable them to train ‘on the job’ with the ideal of achieving employment.
Students in M3 continue their studies in Maths, English and ICT through Functional Skills sessions where they develop their skills in real life situations. For example, planning and budgeting for food preparation, accessing local facilities and planning events.
During the year all students will attend Canterbury College each Thursday where they participate in short courses in a variety of vocational areas and familiarise themselves with the campus and facilities.
