The units in Personal and Social Education (PSE) compliment the three core themes in the PSHE Association's Programme of Study: Health and wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the wider world. There are five levels of qualification available in PSE: Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3, Level 1 and Level 2. All work is adapted to suit each student's level of ability so they can achieve either an award or certificate in this subject. This qualification gives them points to help the students’ access courses in college.
The current unit of focus is Emotional Wellbeing. This fits into the KS3 themed curriculum of ‘Crime’ by assessing how going to prison can have an impact on a person's mental health. Through discussion we are able to examine how other things impact on our Emotional Wellbeing too.
