Queen Alex, Tuesday 17 January:
Please find below information on an exciting new opportunity at Tyne Met College.
They are now offering a wide range of Distance Learning courses, from Care to Sport, all of which are free of charge.
This could be a fantastic opportunity for staff, or parents of pupils to access free training and qualifications that can be done at home.
Year 9 have now watched all of the screencasts for their options choices. In January they will be asked to pick provisional choices during form time.
Students must choose one option from each block. One of these should be history, geography, computer science, French or German.
Please discuss these choices with your child over the Christmas break. There will be a chance to talk to curriculum leaders about the subjects on January 26th (6.00pm until 8.00pm). The options screencasts and booklet, along with Frequently Asked Questions are available on the school website in the ‘Learning’ and ‘Guided Choices’ section.
Here are the Option Blocks for this year’s guided choices programme:
This week’s Wednesday update on our new e-Safety page has a Christmas theme: 12 tips about how to stay safe online for any child receiving a new device over the holiday period.
