I.C.E Course

Independence, confidence and employability – for year 9 students only

Lead teacher - Mr Bradshaw

This is a year 9 course, for foundation learners, aiming to work on key skills to support our young people in developing independence, confidence, communication and employability skills.

Students will develop their teamwork and communication skills through bush craft, horticulture, getting out and about and partnership working with the National Trust, The Papillon Project and other local organisations. Students will also complete a travel training course which will give them the opportunity to be proficient in independent road safety travel skills.  

In addition to this we have extended our course to include work within the community, ensuring that students have an appreciation for what it means to be a good citizen and support the local community across a range of projects and initiatives.

This course is for you if...

The course is run by a number of experienced teachers and volunteers in a variety of environments – utilising the school’s own mini forest, allotment and grounds as well as working in and around Aylsham to support the local community.
