Six of our current Year 11 students became the second successful group to complete and pass the level 2 qualification in Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE), which is part of the ASDAN suite of qualifications.
The course is a unique qualification that accredits progress as the courses advances to recognise each student’s achievement. Throughout the course students develop a wide range of transferable skills that they have used in a variety of subjects.
The students were accessed on a total of six skill units:
- Working with others
- Improving their own learning and performance
- Problem solving
- Carrying out research
- Planning and giving an oral presentation.
Students choose a variety of modules and challenges that provided the evidence they needed to meet the level 2 criteria for the six skills.
To show “improving their own learning and performance” the students completed an 8 week Boxercise course. In passing this course students gained the Bronze award in Boxercise.
Students also were successful in gaining the qualification entry level award in Workplace Hazard Awareness.
Students pictured completing their Boxercise course are as follows: (left to right) Alfie, Dulcie, Jodie, Paige , Thomas , Ben.
