The Harding Group is a Third Year group in Sixth Form. The learning focus for Harding students is preparing to leave school – looking at the range of options available and planning transition into post school provision. Students continue to develop their self advocacy skills to support them in this process.
Students work with community partners to develop personal transition plans e.g. Connexions, Talkback, No Limits. They work closely with Connexions and other professionals and complete their Final Record of Achievement and LifeStory. They also set personal IEP targets and evaluate their progress, and produce PowerPoint presentations and Student Contributions for their final Annual Reviews at Harding House.
Learning programmes have an increased emphasis on work related learning, accessing the community, making personal choices and decisions and maximising independence. Students continue to develop Functional Skills in Communication, Numeracy and ICT, as well as a range of Vocational Skills. All students’ work is accredited and certificated by OCR on the National Skills Profile and Accreditation for Life and Living schemes at Entry Level. They also have the opportunity to achieve Entry Level 1 and 2 qualifications on the Foundation Learning scheme, Life and Living Skills.
Students complete very successful work experience placements – both through the Education Business Partnership with local employers and extended volunteering for the National Trust at Waddesdon Manor. Students are also involved with Community Action on a range of volunteering projects.
Currently there are 8 Year 14 students in the Harding Group, with 1 Tutor, 2 Learning Support Assistants and specialist ICT and Work Experience input.
