Curriculum

EMPLOYABILITY AND LEADERSHIP
DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
 
This will be a compulsory course at Heyford Park Free School.  Employment is rapidly changing and it is necessary for employees to be equipped to cope with change.  We want our students to be the best. Whether they want to go to University or enter a graduate training route, it is important that they can exhibit employability and leadership skills.  They must have developed their resilience and problem solving skills so that  they are clear about their personal values as they face decisions in their futures. Graduate routes are changing with the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy and a wide range of companies are offering more opportunities for trainees to enter graduate apprenticeships with them working in partnership with universities.
This programme will be based on project briefs set by external organisations.  There will be built into each brief opportunities to develop skills such as:
 
  • communication
  • team building
  • presentation skills
  • problem solving
  • initiative
  • and many more….
