Overview of Accreditation

Overview of accreditation at East SILC 
 

Introduction

Students at East SILC have a range of accredited courses they have access to. At John Jamieson and Brigshaw, the intention is for accreditation to build progressively through each phase, so that new learning is built upon a foundation of previous learning. Students at MNTS follow age related accreditation as nearly as is possible. All accredited learning is intended to support learning, rather than lead the learning itself. All accreditation is offered with the intention of developing the students’ knowledge in areas that are relevant and useful for the learners. 

Below is a list of accredited courses that are currently available to students at our various locations. Students will only access courses that are relevant to them, not necessarily all courses that are available.

Summary 

This accreditation covers a wide range of abilities and allows the students to attain at a level appropriate to their abilities and progressive skills. It is a bespoke level of accreditation that is valid and relevant to each student. The accreditation on offer allows students a degree of flexibility as to what they can attain, whatever pathway they may be in. The accreditation best prepares each student for their individual life after school. It allows students to obtain QCF points appropriate to their attainment levels, and the ‘shorter’ courses offered represent the interests and skills of students hoping to make specific progress in areas they are interested in vocationally, or in areas they may need to make key progress in. The key aim is to develop progress in key areas of learning for each individual student to prepare them for their individual pathway into adult life.
