Person Centred Learning

Embleton View provide breadth and balance that reflect personal interests in our programmes, to motivate students who are disaffected to re-engage with education and to embrace the concept of learning.

We want our students to acquire knowledge and learn new skills but we realise that, in a community like Embleton View, there needs to be a therapeutic dimension to each day.

Students have support via their Learning Coaches (LC) in any learning environment and it is possible for them to take time out where necessary if required.

Therefore, this curriculum has been carefully designed to allow for time and opportunities to address students’ often complex needs for the time that they are with us; also, to prepare them for the time when they will leave.

The delivery of this curriculum must consider other considerations, most of which are due to the profile of our students, their circumstances. We plan to offer a broad and balanced curriculum catering for students with very individual needs, therefore some subject areas will be covered through cross-curricula projects rather than discrete subject sessions and some elements of this policy will be aspiration rather than fact
