SwitchED 2 - Fully Accredited Learning in the Lakes
A Differentiated Learning Experience in an Holistic & Supportive Environment - A New Horizon For Young People
My name is Andrew Coates and my past experiences have been teaching as head of Key Stage 4 in a special educational needs school developing personalised learning programmes for pupils who need a differentiated learning approach.
An Idea is Born
Having worked in this environment for the past 10 years I have experienced a wide range of challenges for pupils to attain their aspirations and academic targets. I have provided a range of creative and bespoke packages that enable pupils to flourish and achieve their dreams.
Sharing the experiences
I have been fortunate enough to have been brought up on the farm and these experiences have given me the platform to achieve my goals and aspirations.
My plan is to provide an environment for pupils to enjoy learning and not just do it because they have to, but because they want to.
There are a limited number of places available at SwitchED so please contact me for further information and I will be able to tell you more about the projects and accreditation we can offer.
Through the increased flexibility of vocational experiences with functional skills in recognised accreditation as well as bespoke learning experiences to prepare pupils for their next key stage or post 16 learning journey.
Who would benefit?
All young people
We offer provision for young people from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4 with an aim to develop self-esteem, confidence, team work skills and problem solving skills which are all accredited through the Duke of Edinburgh Award and Open Awards.
Primary schools can benefit from this provision to provide a nurturing and holistic environment. This therapeutic approach can be tailored to individual needs and provide an alternative to a young person's weekly routine.
Secondary Schools, Academies and Pupil Referral Services
Schools will benefit through the increased flexibility of vocational experiences with functional skills in recognised accreditation as well as bespoke learning experiences to prepare pupils for their next key stage or post 16 learning journey.
