The PiXL Edge scheme, an industry endorsed qualification which is intended, over time, to develop and accredit the life skills and attributes that employers are telling us they need - leadership, organisation, initiative, resilience and communication. This will give students a qualification, which runs alongside their academic successes and recognises what they can do as well as what they know.
In order to gain the qualification at "Apprentice", "Graduate" or "Masters" level, students need to complete a range of activities from an approved list. There are a variety of activities that can be undertaken in normal lessons, "drop-down" days, extra-curricular clubs or outside of school.
Progress on the scheme will be managed by students themselves using a specially designed on-line application, with tutors and key stage leads providing an oversight and awarding credits towards achieving the qualification.
