What skills and experience we're looking for

This learning model allows our students to learn in a unique way, focusing on finding solutions to real life problems, through utilising their knowledge from a range of subject disciplines. It equips our students with the skills and knowledge to help them thrive in our 21st-century world. At the centre of the approach are the "driving questions". Examples are things like: ''How can we, as local public health directors, prepare a response plan to the spread of the next infectious disease or public health concern?" Or ''How can we, as global citizens, understand climate change in order to initiate eco-friendly practices at our academy?'' These questions provide the purpose of learning for students and teachers, and they should be engaging for students, provoking and open-ended, with several possible answers or solutions. They immerse pupils in a problem that affects their current and future lives. In answering these, pupils are taught to apply key workplace traits, including interpersonal and communication skills. Teachers overseeing ATL projects are given ring-fenced time to plan together and decide what the working week will comprise of. Teaching ATL has been likened to teaching at primary schools but at a higher level, and teachers have told us they like the freedom this gives them. Overall, teachers have told us ATL makes them more imaginative and confident. ATL has also had an impact on the dynamic between teacher and pupil: the lessons create an environment of greater parity between pupils and teachers as they are both learning at the same time. Pupils taking the lessons are much more confident and engaged with their learning. ATL is driving the speaking and listening requirements of the national curriculum and is also developing vital soft skills, as students are learning the value of collaboration and teamwork.
