Key Stage 5

Our Vocational learning and option programmes aim to provide our learners with the opportunity to explore a range of vocational areas and supporting them to further develop their skills and interests and aspirations in a safe and secure setting.

 

The courses on offer include Catering, Horticulture, Cycle Maintenance, Hair and Beauty and Independent Living. All are linked into external accreditations including AQA and OCR.

 

   

This area of work is to enable learners to make informed choices about what they would like to do in the future and enrich their areas of interest which allows learners to experience and learn about these vocations, developing skills and knowledge required for a particular job function or an area of future employment.

 

Learners spend two full days of the curriculum timetable which provides a practical ‘hands on’ approach to the subjects. During the vocational program, learners are expected to visit communities, retail environments and meet people in the workplace to gain a wider understanding of the world of work.

 

Within the delivery of the vocational course learners will have opportunities to develop their skills and understanding of literacy and numeracy in everyday situations and complete OCR communication and Numeracy units.

 

All learners will have access to work related learning in the form of work experience. Woodfield School 6th Form works with Brent Work Experience Partners to find, establish and link our learners with work experience placements throughout the year.


It is the aim of the 6th Form to provide each learner with either one or two full days placement for a whole term in an environment that is associated to their individual Vocational Educational pathways.
