Key Stages 4 and 5 Curriculum

At Boston Endeavour Academy, our Post 14 students follow either ASDAN Personal Progress or AQA Unit Awards, which is the final stage of preparing our young people for adulthood. From their 14+ reviews onwards, we support our students to experience, work within and negotiate many different places, situations and contexts, including Boston College for some students, a wide range of social care providers, work experience placements and cultural, leisure and retail resources.

During their time in our Post 14 department, our students will build their portfolios at their relevant level.

The Asdan and AQA curriculums include units covering:
Mathematics and English Skills and Knowledge-
The students will learn to apply the English and Mathematics skills and knowledge they have established in earlier Key Stages. Our practical, locally focused curriculum from Early Years to Key Stage 3 has made the students familiar with the context they live in and provides them with a secure base from which to apply prior learning.
Over the period of 5 years, the students will complete a range of English and Mathematics units to ensure an enriched curriculum to provide all students with the skills and knowledge necessary for leading to an independent future.

Independent Living Skills-
We have a different theme/topic every term when the students will work on units specifically chosen to develop their independent living skills. The students will have the opportunity to develop their independence in a range of areas including, horticulture, preparing meals, snacks and drinks, road safety, washing clothing and bedding, cleaning equipment and key areas, personal care, shopping and pursuing hobbies and interests.

Careers and Employability-
Careers and employability is a major focus of the Key Stage 4 and 5 curriculum and we ascribe to the Gatsby framework. Careers education has been integrated into units throughout the rest of the school-preparing students for this final stage of their schooling.
The students will have the opportunity to develop their skills in a manner that has been personalised and adapted to best suit their individual needs. These may include creating a CV, producing a personal statement, preparing for, attending a mock interview, and travelling independently to school or college.
