Havering Sixth Form College Learning Plan Course Plan: A Level Photography L6 Image

An outline of the course and key dates can be found on the following pages. Commitment to equality of opportunity, British values and skills for next steps: In planning this course, we commit to developing resources and teaching strategies that reflect and value the diversity of learners’ experiences. Where opportunities arise we will provide learners with a comprehensive understanding of people and communities beyond their immediate experience. We will promote open, honest and relevant debate around the values of democracy, individual liberty, the law and mutual respect wherever possible. Where appropriate we will embed English, mathematics, ICT and employability skills to ensure that learners are wellequipped with the necessary skills to progress to their next steps.
