“The learners are articulate and engage in the learning positively” Ofsted, January 2017
Young people are now expected to remain in learning until they are 18. This does not just mean staying in school - young people could:
Attend a college
Start a course of work-based learning
Get a job
Do voluntary work
Be supported by Social Services/Social Care and Health/Children’s Service
The choices available post-16 will be subject to local authority funding.
At Wilds Lodge around half of the cohort of Year 11 students will access the post-16 provision into Year 12 and beyond due to the local colleges being unable to meet their needs. The other students will return home to access college, employment or apprenticeships locally.
We also accept both day and boarding students (we currently only offer boarding for male students) that have not completed their education within Wilds Lodge into the provision and will build an individualised programme to work towards their aspirations. All our students will have an Education and Health Care Plan.
Wilds Lodge work with local colleges to provide links and support transitions.
Wilds Lodge post-16 provision has been in place for many years and offers a range of courses and opportunities from the more vocational through to the more academic. We use links with local provisions in Leicestershire, Rutland and Lincolnshire. We also work with colleges further afield to support students working to transition back into their local area. This enables community links and friendships to be built over time and a slow and steady transition back into the home environment with the support of school staff. Please visit our Education page for more details of the courses we offer at Wilds Lodge.
