Our Curriculum

We offer a relevant, challenging and skills-led curriculum where priority is given to providing enjoyable learning in a range of motivating contexts, developing necessary skills for life in the 21st century.

Our curriculum is in line with Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence. The purpose of our curriculum is to support opportunities for learners to be successful and to prepare them for life beyond school. Our curriculum structure ensures that learners have the opportunity to be:

  • successful learners;
  • confident individuals;
  • effective contributors;
  • responsible citizens.

Our teaching is needs-led, skills-based, and always tailored to our learners’ needs through our Individualised Education Programmes. Learners come to Corseford because we offer a bespoke education supported by resources that grow and develop as they do.

Our curriculum framework has four principles that play an integral part in our daily learning. Our principles are:

  • communication;
  • skills for learning, life and work;
  • health and well-being (resilience);
  • responding to my environment.

Within a planned cycle of assessment, moderation and tracking, each learner will take part in high-quality learning experiences throughout their individualised and tailored learning journey. Our learning pathways provide a flexible framework for targeted work and learners may move between the pathways according to changing needs.

Learners will choose areas of study as they move from Broad General Education to Senior Phase and the level of certification achieved alongside social skills and well-being will impact onward positive destinations.

Our learning pathways are met by teaching through well-planned topics or themes matched to pupils’ needs, interests and hobbies. We offer a wide range of SQA certifications, currently up to the National 2 level. Across all learning, we explore and develop abilities in communication, self-awareness and emotions, and motor skills.
