Qualifications at Fox Hollies

 

We regularly review the qualifications offered at Fox Hollies to ensure that they are relevant, meaningful and sufficiently challenging to meet the different needs of our students. Below is a list of the current qualifications offered in our 14-19 department. 

Asdan Personal Progress units at Entry 1. Personal Progress offers a wide range of units which enable students to learn through practical activities. Most students study these units and achieve at either Certificate or Diploma level by the time they leave Fox Hollies.

Asdan Personal and Social Development units are followed by students who are working at Entry 2 and Entry 3. These are varied according to the needs and interests of the students and where appropriate, they link to the theme being covered in the curriculum that term. This award can also be studied at Level 1. 

BTEC Home Cooking Level 1 and Level 2 are followed by students who have the potential to live independently in the future or to develop their independence in the family home.

Level 1 Award, Certificate or Diploma in Practical Horticulture is offered to a small number of pupils who attend a Thrive Project offsite.

From January 2020 we will be introducing the OCR Functional Skills English and Maths accreditation into Pathway 3 classes. This accreditation can be gained at Entry Level 1, 2, 3 and Level 1.
