Progress is measured in various ways. Every term, progress is measured in OP's against six essential skills within the context of the PfA strategy. During lessons, teachers use various formative assessment techniques to assess if students have made progress against skill steps. At work related learning placements, students have their own record booklet which has been personalised to their outcomes. The booklet has been produced by our Careers Lead who has used the eight essential skills as a base to let job coaches and employers record skills used at the work place. Some teachers at KS5 and KS4 use the resources within the Skills Builder Hub to teach and assess skills. We have been successful in getting 1 in 5 of our leavers into paid employment this year against a national average of 1 in 20 as a specialist setting.
