What is The PixL Edge?

Pixl 1

We are pleased to inform you that we will be offering your son/daughter the opportunity to embark on an innovative scheme called ‘The Edge’.

The scheme is intended, over time, to develop and accredit the life
skills and attributes that employers are telling us they need – leadership, organisation, initiative, resilience and communication.  This will give students a qualification, which runs alongside their academic successes and recognises what they can do as well as what they know.

 

What?

In order to gain the qualification at “Apprentice”, “Graduate” or “Masters” level, students need to complete a range of activities from an approved list.  The activities can be many and varied and can be undertaken in normal lessons, in extra-curricular clubs or outside of school.Pixl 2

Progress on the scheme will be managed by students themselves using a specially designed on-line application, with Tutors and Year Co-ordinators providing an oversight and awarding credits towards achieving the qualification.
