Teacher in Charge: Ms S. SinghRecommended Prior Learning
No prior learning required.
Students are required to complete tasks and present an organised portfolio with evidence of tasks and key competency development for internal verification. The focus is on being able to manage yourself, set targets, work with others and problem solve are skills for ‘lifelong learning’ whether you go on to higher education or out into the workplace. Students are given the choice of selecting their own tasks.
Students will engage in self-directed learning under the guidance of a tutor, with all records kept in the course book and portfolio.
Students gain improved social confidence, motivation and self-esteem in setting targets and achieving them. The SPEC courses target key competencies necessary for the workforce, i.e. Managing self, thinking, relating to others, using language symbols and texts, participating and contributing.
