Troop Learning Centre Curriculum Provision
The students will have a timetable for either a morning or afternoon session. The hours/sessions, the students have, is dependent upon their reason for receiving their education at TLC (usually between 5 and 15 hours per week). The group sizes vary between 6 and 12.
Years 7, 8 and 9 are taught in one group. They will receive their core subjects (English, Maths and Science) along with a selection of enrichment activities (Art, IT, Music, Humanities and Cooking) during their sessions.
Years 10 and 11 are taught in one group. They will receive their core subjects (English, Maths IT and Science) along with a selection of enrichment activities (Art, Music, PSHE and Cooking) during their sessions.
If a student is only attending the centre for a short period of time, their mainstream school may wish to provide them with the work they would be doing if they were at school so that they can keep up to date with it.
For some students, it will not be possible for them to attend the centre and they will receive their education on a one to one basis at home until they can either get into the centre or return to their mainstream school. This is usually due to medical reasons such as operations. If a student is at TLC during their exam period, they will be able to sit their exams at the centre or be able to return to their mainstream school if it’s appropriate for them to do so.
