"Working together to make everything better"

Learning for Life

Learning For Life [LFL]

This subject area brings together PSHEE, PE, Work-Related Learning, Careers, Enterprise, and Financial Capability. At Joseph Paxton Campus, Citizenship, SRE and RE also form part of the LFL curriculum.

Students will also have one LFL lesson each week led by the Mentor Team. These sessions will be active, non-class-room based and will often involve students experiencing learning in their local environment.

All accredited units/modules involve working towards the ASDAN Key Steps qualification.
