CPD Accredited Course for Year 11s

Dear Year 11 Parent(s) / Guardian(s)

In the current circumstances, we understand that our Year 11 pupils may well be feeling a little bit lost at the moment.  They are, perhaps, not sure what to do with this extra time that they have suddenly been given, with no exams and college still feeling a long way off. As I hope you know, we are putting together a programme of subject-specific suggestions and this will be with you shortly; the colleges will also be offering ideas. However, I am writing to you today, to offer your son/daughter a great additional opportunity.

We predict that in future interviews for university or employment, this particular cohort may well be asked the question “How did you use your time during lock-down productively?”. We would like our pupils to have an impressive answer!

FranklinCovey, an international, award winning Leadership Training company, who are well respected within a wide range of careers, have developed a self-led online personal development course for 15-18 year olds.

We believe that this course will help prepare your son/daughter for further education and employment. It is designed to develop their leadership skills, their ability to understand and communicate effectively with others, set goals and manage their time well. The course is CPD accredited and therefore is an excellent addition to any pupils CV.

Pupils will gain access to structured online learning modules, containing inspiring video content, interactive activities and short discussion tasks. The course is entirely self-paced, however, below is a guide to give you some idea of the time commitment required:

1 Hour a day Monday to Friday = Approximately 6-8 weeks to complete.

3-4 Hours a week = Approximately 10 – 12 weeks to complete.

All delegates are given 1 Years access to the material. However, we recommend that pupils set themselves the deadline of ideally the end of the summer term, or at the latest, the end of August. This will allow us to award them their certificate at our Year 11 presentation evening in November 2020.

As a mark of recognition for the hard work and effort this Year 11 cohort have put into their academic studies, we intend to fully fund this course for any pupil who would like to enrol.

Please click on the survey below and let us know whether you would like your son/daughter to be enrolled.  We would like pupils to be able to start as soon as possible and so we are setting a strict closing date for enrolment of Monday 4th of May 2020.
