World Skills Day

We recently visited the world skills show at the NEC arena on 21st November 2019 and a great time was had by all.

No Pens Wednesday

Last week, ALP Leicester had a really successful ‘No Pens Wednesday’.  

No Pens Day Wednesday encourages schools and settings to put down their pens and to run a day of speaking and listening activities. At ALP Leicester, we did just that on Wednesday 13th October.  Staff and pupils enjoyed a day of activities – all without a single pen or pencil in sight! In primary, to link with their thematic learning topic of ‘From A to B’, pupils worked in teams to help navigate a blindfolded person around a maze which had been set up in the hall. 
In Secondary, pupils took part in various activities, including a giant game of snakes and ladders to support their learning in maths.  Staff really stepped up to the challenge of planning a whole day of ‘no pens’ activities whilst pupils enjoyed the different activities planned for them.

A visit from Employability UK

We have recently had a visit from Employability UK. Their mission is to facilitate employer engagement to enhance the aspirations, opportunities and career prospects of enthusiastic and committed young people.

Students took part in ‘Be your Best You’, ‘A-Z of Super Confidence’, ‘Free Time’, ‘Health & Fitness’, ‘Next Steps’ (CV’s, pathways to work) and ‘vision boards’.

Congratulations go to James Shortland won the Star Student of the day
