Sharing Innovative Approaches and Overcoming Barriers in Delivering 16-19 Study Programmes Principles. Case Study Report
McCrone, Tami; Hopwood, Vicky; Wade, Pauline; White, Richard
National Foundation for Educational Research
Study Programmes were introduced in 2013 so that every post-16 provider could offer their learners coherent study programmes with breadth and depth, enabling learners to progress successfully to employment, apprenticeships, or higher education. Study programmes should include: at least one substantial qualification; English and mathematics for those learners yet to achieve a GCSE at grade C or above; for learners not ready to take a substantial qualification--a traineeship or extended work experience; and non-qualification activity such as tutorial time and work experience where appropriate. This report highlights "what works" in terms of the successful delivery of work experience in the 16 to 19 study programmes; summarizes six case studies that demonstrated different aspects of effective work experience; and approaches developed by schools and colleges to improve young people's employability skills.
