The Learning Core
The Learning Core recognises the wider learning by young people, and the skills, knowledge and understanding, values and experiences that all 14-19 year olds require whatever their chosen pathway.
There is an important distinction between the Learning Core and what is sometimes termed “core provision” is schools. The Learning Core is more flexible and wide-ranging and the whole of the learners’ programme can contribute to the Learning Core.
The flexibility of the Learning Core can be its strength because it can accommodate all learners.
Taking up this opportunity should help both the learner and the provider. Young people need to develop skills and capabilities that make them better able to deal with further learning and with the demands of work. Providers can benefit from having more motivated and more effective learners.
