We deliver the award as part of our forest schools class, providing students with the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning experiences, environmental exploration, and conservation efforts within the enchanting setting of our Forest Schools. From cultivating a deep connection with the natural world to fostering personal growth and environmental responsibility, the John Muir Award inspires our students to become passionate guardians of our planet.

Pathways

Sensory Communication Pathway

Applicants are normally 16-24 and have a current Education Health and Care Plan.

Sensory learners may have profound multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) and/or highly complex health conditions. Students benefit from a wide range of interactive opportunities to explore preferences, which enrich and add value to their health and wellbeing.

Communication and Interaction

Applicants are normally 16-24 and have a current Education Health and Care Plan.

This pathway supports students to develop and use their preferred style of communication to make choice or express preference – able to make simple choices with support using naturally adopted strategies that life has supported them to use to get the intended outcome.

Skills for Independent Living

You will be aged 16-24 and have a current Education Health and Care Plan.

This is one of our most popular pathways, and it is intended for students who benefit from structure and routine as they prepare for life as adults beyond education. People who learn through practical based activities that are real and relevant.

Skills for Life and Work

Applicants are normally 16-24 and have a current Education Health and Care Plan.

Students are commonly capable of voluntary or paid employment and can be supported to maintain consistent and sustainable standards of work, for meaningful periods at a pace that reflects the demands of a workplace or voluntary role.

Access to Learning

Applicants are normally 16-24 and have a current Education Health and Care Plan.

Applicants could follow a highly personalised approach to any of the curriculum pathways, but for reasons relating to their learning needs, challenges of health or emotional regulation would benefit from a small group approach. This is to ensure the safety of self, others and to plan for an appropriate environment to make a positive transition, and thrive in college. This pathway, which was formerly known as Access through Partnerships and relies on teachers, health and social care professionals and therapists formulating a partnership approach to a personalised programme.
