Level 2 Stevenage 6th Programme

The Foundation Skills Programme was established to further develop our original level 2 programme and to, again, increase student numbers supporting some of our most vulnerable young people including those with SEND who require a ‘nurture style’ setting and programme, reducing NEETs and supporting Raising the Participation Agenda (RPA).

Students spend 3 days per week in Partnership Schools studying a variety of courses including;

  • GCSE English / iGCSE English / Functional Skills English
  • GCSE Maths / Functional Skills Maths
  • Applied Science
  • BTEC Money & Finance Skills
  • BTEC Business Studies
  • BTEC Public Services
  • ASDAN
  • Sports Leaders UK – Level 2
  • IOSH Health & Safety Qualification
  • Duke of Edinburgh Bronze/Silver Award
  • Vinspired 50 / 100
  • Dragons Apprentice Challenge

The programme has grown steadily over the past four years and, this year, we have our largest cohort consisting of fifteen students representing all four of the Stevenage Sixth schools.  With established links to Youth Connexions and North Hertfordshire College, the programme is now in a position to be able to recruit throughout this academic year as a preferred choice and to support students at risk.
