DfE: Study Programme Principles

All study programmes should: Impington International Sixth Form provision
include one or more academic, applied or vocational qualifications that stretch the student and link clearly to training, employment or higher education, or work preparation and an extended work placement for those students who are not ready for study at level 2, or who are on a traineeship We run five different curriculum pathways all of which stretch the students and link to progressions pathways:
IBDP
IBCP
BTECs
A levels
IDEAL
   
require students who do not have GCSE A*-C in maths or English to work towards the achievement of these qualifications All students without a C grade (or grade 4) attend timetabled lessons to prepare for the resit. All students are entered for the exams repeatedly until either the end of their course or they attain the grade.
   
allow for meaningful work experience (related to the vocational area) and/or other non-qualification activity to develop students’ personal skills and/or prepare them for employment, training or higher/further education All students complete at least one week of meaningful work experience related to their desired progression route. All students follow the IBO’s required Creativity, Activity and Service programme which extends learning beyond the curriculum and into the community.
   
All study programmes should focus on maximising progression to the next stage of education, employment or an apprenticeship. We run a comprehensive progressions programme tailored to supporting and inspiring individuals to achieve their desired destination.
