Support – Non Examination

Students taking the support option will follow a programme of work to support access to other subjects by focussing on literacy and numeracy skills, although the course can be personalised to support the individual needs of a student.

Students doing Support will find that at times it links in with what they are doing in their English and mathematics lessons, but there will be the opportunity to concentrate on particular areas which help learning across the curriculum. There will often be links to topics students are studying in other parts of the curriculum.

Students will be given the opportunity to develop their learning and build up understanding of the skills they need to improve their performance in all areas of the curriculum.
