The New Horizons programme is learner-centred, offering structure and flexibility; it provides recognition for small steps in achievement.
Working with their tutor, the student completes a Personal Skills section in the New Horizons Record Book for each module they do, which will help them identify specific things they're good at.
The final activity in each module is My Challenge. This requires the learner, working with the tutor, to identify something new they would like to try.
Levels of support are used to show how the learner has achieved the activity. They show individual progression and differentiation between learners:
- Experience recorded
- Gestural help
- No help
- Physical help
- Sensory experience
- Spoken/signed help
Additionally, there is an opportunity to record students' achievements by allocating a P level or other descriptor to their work, as appropriate.
The activities are split into five modules:
Each module contains a focused careers-related activity.
