PSHE Sixth Form - Entry Level

Students working at Entry Level 1 – Low Entry Level 2 work towards completing PSHE units of work presented through the OCR Life & Living Skills course and AQA Unit Award Scheme.

Students working between Entry Level 2 and Level 1 work towards completing modules of work presented through the ASDAN on-line PSHE Short Course.

The courses delivered are designed to help learners with their personal development through PSHE. The specific modules focus on key areas as identified by the PSHE Association under their three core themes of:

  • health and well-being
  • relationships and living in the wider world
  • economic wellbeing, careers and the world of work

The ASDAN PSHE Short Course also meets the criteria for outstanding personal development, behaviour and welfare, as identified by Ofsted in the Common Inspection Framework, by:

  • helping young people make informed choices
  • including modules based around the next stage of education, employment or training
  • actively supporting learning about all aspects of a young person’s welfare
  • promoting keeping safe in a variety of situations and settings, including online safety
  • providing opportunities for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, equipping young people to be thoughtful, caring and active citizens in school and the wider community.

Students are supported in their learning through a range of interactive resources, visiting speakers etc. to promote understanding and enable them to relate their learning to real life and personal experiences.

All the skills standards for Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3 and Level 1 are assessed in each task delivered. These skills standards are assessed through the application of the coverage and range; however relevant content can also be drawn from the National Curriculum levels 1 to 3. These skills standards are derived from the process skills with reference to the differentiating factors which are detailed in the OCR Life & Living, AQA Unit Award Scheme and ASDAN on-line Short Course specifications.
