Graduation Programme

 The Bishop Graduation ProgrammeGraduate Programme

The Graduation Award is a new initiative to help promote the development of the whole person. The aim is to increase student participation in all aspects of school life to enable each individual to secure a deeper appreciation of their learning and become more ‘well-rounded’.

Level of Award

Students across the whole school will gain different levels of accreditation for a wide range of experiential learning and involvement in school life, focusing on four key areas: Leadership; Learning; Community; and Initiative.

Novice Award: A student will have completed at least 6 experiences from those available. To achieve the novice award, students must complete experiences from at least two different ‘challenge’ areas.

Apprentice Award: A student will have completed at least 10 experiences from those available. To achieve the apprentice award, students must complete experiences from at least three different ‘challenge’ areas.

Graduate Award: A student will have completed at least 15 experiences from those available. To achieve the graduate award, students must complete experiences from all four ‘challenge’ areas.

For each award, students will receive a pin badge, to be worn on their school blazer or clothing, to commemorate their efforts and achievements over a period of time.

The experiences students have will vary during their time at school. While many students are unlikely to have completed each of the 40 experiences at school, most will have been able to fully immerse themselves into the life of the community. Naturally, for students to achieve accreditation it relies on the goodwill of staff to support the programme by offering a wide-range of events.

At the end of each term, students who have broadened their experiences at school and achieved an award will be presented with their Graduation Badge. If you have any questions regarding the award itself or have any ideas then please get in touch with Miss Leighfield, Assistant Head leighfields@bishopofllandaff.org
