Future@CRC – 14-16 provision

14-16 provision – Information for Schools 2020/21 

At CRC, we provide an alternative education for year 10s and 11s that allows us to deliver an adapted curriculum in a 14-16 provision. It runs for three days a week, incorporating core subject lessons and a vocational option. The vocational option is a great opportunity for learners to develop skills that will support their progression post-16. This provision is to be a partnership between the sending school and the college. We also work closely with our welfare team and external agencies to provide additional support to help learners reach their full potential.

Description of the Curriculum

Each day will involve core lessons in:

  • English Functional Skills at Entry Level, Level 1 or Level 2*
  • Maths Level 1 or Level 2 in Number and Measure*
  • Level 1 UAL Award in Art Design and Media*
  • NCFE Entry Level Employability Skills or Personal & Social Development Skills*

The learner then chooses from one of the following vocational options:

  • Construction
  • Motor Vehicle
  • Hair and Beauty
  • Hospitality & Catering (Cambridge campus only)
Hairdessing
Motor Vehicle
Catering

The vocational course will result in either a certificate or formal qualification.
*subject to assessment and change at the discretion of the College.

Expected Course Outcomes

With positive engagement and high attendance (95%+) learners can expect to achieve the following:

  • Positive changes in their attitude to learning and training
  • A functional skill in English
  • Award in Number and Measure
  • Progression to Further Education or Apprenticeship employment
  • Improved behaviour and development of social and personal skills
  • Prevention of permanent exclusion
  • Improved self-esteem and higher personal expectations and aspirations.

Where 14-14 provision learners are not here for the whole of their Key Stage 4 duration (2 years) it may not be possible to achieve the full qualification in their vocational subject. However, certification will be given for any work that has been completed, either from the awarding body or via a college certificate confirming skills achieved.

Learners will remain on the school roll and CRC will report to the sending school on a termly basis. If a learner’s behaviour breaches college policies, we will use the College disciplinary procedures, and this may result in their place being terminated if deemed necessary. This may come with a part-refund of fees.

Pastoral Support on Offer

This 14-16 provision is to be a partnership between the sending school and the college. There is a requirement that the sending school will provide a key worker/ contact at the school for the purpose of passing on information about attendance, progress, behaviour concerns etc. Equally, the school will be provided with the details of managers and staff from Futures@CRC including the main contact for their particular young person.

All enrolled students will be given access to the VLE so they are able to study from home or at school. There will be work provided for the learners to complete outside of college via the Virtual Learning Environment. It is assumed that where possible, schools may be able to facilitate access to this in the days the learners cannot attend college. 

In the unlikely event that we are unable to successfully support you at the Futures@CRC and
you are required to move to another education provider, CRC would still welcome an application for a post-16 course, as long as it is supported by a good reference. 

For full details of the support on offer, please contact the Head of Key Stage 4 who will be happy to provide further details.

Transport

Transport to and from the site remains the responsibility of the sending school. However, if the young person lives within reach of an existing college contract bus route they may be able to purchase a college bus pass for the year in order to attend Cambridge Regional College. Details available on request or at www.camre.ac.uk/transport. 

Cost

  • Full academic year = £7,500
  • Termly = £2,700 (late starters)

CRC will cover the cost for PPE uniform in the first instance, however, if it is ripped or ruined we  will charge for replacements. These costs are approximately:

  • Hair £50
  • Beauty £50
  • Catering £70
  • Construction £30†
  • Motor Vehicle £30†

† For Construction and Motor Vehicle learners are expected to provide their own safety boots.
There may also be additional costs for exams and trips depending on the vocational subject the learner chooses.

If a 14-16 provision learner is eligible for free school meals, the sending school will be charged at a rate of £2.41 per day for the three days a week the learner attends CRC.

For students who have an additional EHCP, additional support may be required and therefore, fees may be subject to negotiation and change.
