There is a rapidly-growing awareness among school leaders, the business sector, and policy makers that young people in England are not being equipped with a broad enough range of skills before leaving school.
Academic achievement is important, but preparing students for life after education requires more than this. The SSAT Student Passport provides a framework for students to record a huge range of life experiences beyond the academic.
The recording of these experiences, and the development of skills gained from them, are intended to:
- Enrich students’ cultural capital
- Empower students as agents of change
- Prepare students for employment
- Engage students in citizenship.
As students progress through their passport, they will have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of modules. Students are also encouraged to work with their teachers to set their own challenges – these can either replace or complement the provided SSAT challenges.
Key Stage 3
Focus on breadth of experiences (9 compulsory modules)
Key Stage 4
Focus on depth and specialism (6 compulsory modules; 3 optional modules)
Key Stage 5
Focus on further education, training and employment aspirations (3 compulsory modules; 6 optional modules)
On completion of the passport, students will receive a written and signed letter of recommendation from the Chief Executive.
