Personalised Foundation Learning Provision
Personalised Foundation Learning (PFL) is a suite of off-site, community based provision for KS4 students struggling to access a mainstream curriculum. It takes place with 6 commissioned providers including training providers, charities and an FE College across East Sussex.
Full time PFL students access Core provision for 3 days a week studying Functional Skills English, Maths and ICT and either a Level 1 Laser Learning, Employability and Progression (LEAP) or a BTEC Work Skills qualification. Full and part time students then choose accredited courses for 2 days per week in vocational areas including Sport, Art and Media, Construction and Bike Mechanics. Students may also be able to access work experience placements if appropriate.
PFL provision is aimed at students working predominantly at Level 1 and below (GCSE grade 1-4/ previously D-G) with a vocational interest who have outgrown school but are not yet ready for College or an Apprenticeship. Sessions are hands on, groups are small and expectations are high.
Full time students are supported by College Central Key Workers to help address barriers to attendance, attainment and progression post 16. They also have access to independent and impartial careers guidance to support transition.
PFL students remain on roll of their home school who maintain responsibility for monitoring attendance, attainment and ensuring the welfare of their students. College central commissions, manages and quality assures PFL provision to ensure students access high quality, meaningful provision.
