Qualifications at Fox Hollies.


Pupils follow an individualised programme of qualifications based on their learning needs and their interests. Qualifications are offered at different levels so that every pupil has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Asdan Personal Progress units at Entry 1. Personal Progress offers a wide range of units which enable pupils to learn through practical activities. Most pupils 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 studied by pupils who are working at Entry 2 and Entry 3. Again, these are varied and chosen to support pupils’ individual learning needs and interests.

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

Asdan Personal and Social Development Level 1, Asdan Employability Level 1, Asdan Award of Personal Effectiveness. These qualifications are currently offered to a very small number of pupils who are able to study at this level.

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