Post 16 Curriculum

The provision of Post-16 learning is rapidly developing at Handsworth Grange Community Sports College.

The Post-16 Curriculum is provided in partnership with The Sheffield College, Peaks Centre.  Provision currently consists of the following courses:

  • BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care  (3 A level equivalent)
  • BTEC Level 3 National Diploma in Health and Social Care  (2 A level equivalent)
  • BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Business  (3 A level equivalent)
  • BTEC Level 3 National Diploma in Business  (2 A level equivalent)

Students studying on the partnership undertake 2/3 of their post16 1.jpglearning onsite at Handsworth Grange Community Sports College and the remaining 1/3 of their study at Peaks College.

In addition to formal study students are encouraged to take part in the in-house mentoring scheme 'Transition Buddies'. The programme is designed to allow Post-16 students to develop and demonstrate a range of key interpersonal skills through a detailed mentoring programme. Post-16 students will work closely with identified Year 7 students to support them in their academic and social progress and to ease the transition process for these students.  Post-16 students will take the role of mentor and support the younger students during tutor time and social times if required. They will work closely with their mentees and link with the relevant staff to support the wellbeing of these students. The programme will be accredited and championed by local industry providers and is an excellent addition to CVs and UCAS applications.
