Our unique approach at Oakwood is that we work with the learner, their families and other people involved in their lives to decide what and how they should learn. The content of the learners programme is driven by the targets in their EHCP and their own personal goals and aspirations, and we use the curriculum as vehicle to deliver this.
The first six weeks of the College term is an initial assessment period, where we design activities and learning to assess the learners starting point in relation to their targets, and where we can, we use a measurement tool so that we can track the progress that they make through the terms.
MEETING THE INDIVIDUAL NEEDS OF OUR LEARNERS
TEACHING & LEARNING
We work with learners aged 16 and upwards including those working at the earliest stages of entry level qualifications to Entry 3 and level 1.
Our Curriculum offer is not defined by a qualification, and is structured around the Post 16 Study Programme model which includes a learning programme, work experience, maths and English and other non qualification activity to enrich our learners experience and prepare them for adulthood.
