Curriculum Intent

At NHTS, 14 – 16 learners are given firsthand access to local employers and FE providers, in order to provide a “two-track” vocational route towards future training/ education/ apprenticeships – as an alternative to purely academic higher education.

Our vocational curriculum is therefore built upon the mix of practical and theory-based learning, whereby learners acquire skills that tend to be well matched to the needs of local employers.

We therefore believe that ALL of our learners should be encouraged to explore the merits of vocational education, with the goal of eventually becoming highly specialised workers, who are perfectly matched to a sector’s current needs.
