By the end of 6th form (BACHILLERATO), many young people will leave home for the first time and live independently, possibly in distant locations. There is a balance throughout this Programme of Study between preparing students to manage their current lives and laying the foundations for managing future
experiences. As students progress through the key stages, this balance shifts towards teaching related to young people’s current experiences. It is essential
to ensures students continue to learn about issues with real-life relevance to
them, at a crucial transition point in their lives.
The learning opportunities at this stage assume that students have already covered those in secondary.
This stage represents the last opportunity to ensure that students have the knowledge and understanding, skills, strategies and attributes they need
for independent living and the next stage in their education or career.
