Work Related Learning
Aspire2Achieve is a Work Related Learning course for both Key Stage 3 and 4 students that have a desire to enhance their personal development whilst gaining the basic skills and knowledge to pursue a career in agriculture, horticulture or animal care.
Students will work in small groups with a team of specialists that have a combination of industry and teaching experience. The course is currently being delivered in a variety of settings throughout Warwickshire and the West Midlands such as the picturesque Coombe Abbey Country Park located in Coventry. The practical nature of the course allows students the opportunity to study in an alternative learning environment where the delivery plan is often determined by the seasons.
Throughout the year students work hard to build a portfolio of evidence that showcases their ability in a range of topics and skills including:
Maintaining the safety of self and others in the workplace
Assisting with planting and establishing plants
Assisting with crosscutting and stacking forest and woodland produce
