Job Title: Head of KS5 PSHCE


As head of KS5 PHSCE my role is to coordinate a PSHCE programme with content that is important and relevant for young adults. I am passionate about creating an ethos where students can explore PSHCE issues in a safe environment. It is a vital part of a Sixth Form student’s learning programme as it helps to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as members of modern society. Students will explore a range of themes including drug and alcohol awareness, mental health, personal safety and how to develop a career path.
