The Bay CE School are pleased to confirm that we have launched Pixl EDGE. This is a national innovative scheme that is intended, over time, to develop a number of key life skills and attributes which will assist students in succeeding once they leave school.
The scheme has been developed in conjunction with a number of companies and employers who have expressed the core skills students need to be able to succeed in a workplace, in addition to their academic qualifications. These skills have been broken down into five core areas: Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication, or LORIC for short.
Students have to complete a total of ten activities, two in each category. There are examples of what these activities may involve below, or you can go to the Pixl website for more information.
Once a student has successfully completed all ten tasks, they will have ‘The EDGE’ which will be represented in the form of a qualification recognised by schools and colleges and, increasingly, employers as well. We host a large celebration event in July, with special guests from the world of business, and a presentation of awards to our successful candidates.
