So Friday the 13th might be superstitious for some but for us it was our farewell to our students on our Pedestrian Provision.
Since September 2011 we have had over 30 young people engage in our 2 courses, SoundLab and Creative Enterprise, and we are pleased to announce that all of our students have been successful and have passed their NOCN qualifications. The teaching team, which included Lead Tutors Gra Roberts, Daniel Aldred and Jo Lees and Facilitators Naji Roberts and Craig Thurlow, were pleased to see the students efforts translate into formal qualifications and no one could have been prouder than Jodie Cresswell-Waring the Education Manager. She said "I am so proud that the students have formally achieved to such a high standard this year! The provision staff team have delivered over 400 guided teaching hours to the challenging young people and they have managed to succeed in getting them through nationally recognized qualifications. Our provision continues to uphold it’s 100% pass rate. I really enjoy working with our talented and dedicated team and I am already looking forward to the challenges and triumphs of next year!"
The Soundlab Qualification outcomes for this year are:
5 NOCN Certificates in Developing Skills and Knowledge in Music Production and Song Writing
17 Awards in Developing Skills and Knowledge in Music Production and Song Writing
With 18 credits accumulated additionally.
This equates to a mighty 222 credits for Soundlab!
The Creative Enterprise qualification outcomes for this year are:
4 NOCN Certificates in Developing Creative Enterprise Skills and Knowledge in Business
10 NOCN Awards in Developing Creative Enterprise Skills and Knowledge in Business
With 4 accredits accumulated additionally.
This equates to a massive 148 credits for Creative Enterprise!
The last few weeks of term were full of new faces getting an introduction into the courses for our next academic year on the Provision.
The majority of the leavers are embarking into Further Education this September. A handful of the young people are joining work placements with some of the year tens returning to us to complete higher qualifications next year.
Lead Tutor Jo Lees said "I worked on the provision last year as facilitator and was looking forward to the challenge of becoming Lead Tutor this year. It has been great to see such a high percentage of our students going onto higher education and all of them achieving a qualification"
Here at Pedestrian we champion alternative education giving young people the opportunity to pioneer their potential and progress in life.
