Personal Development and Future Choices

Personal Development and Future Choices (PDFC) aims to enable students to become successful and      confident individuals who live a safe and healthy life.   In addition, it aims to prepare students for adulthood in order for them to become active, responsible citizens well prepared for the world of work and with good employability skills.

 PDFC aims to provide students with opportunities for discussion, debate, critical thinking and research into a variety of topics.  We aim to encourage development of self esteem, confidence and a sense of responsibility for self and others. Students are encouraged to consider the effects they can have on other people and the importance of respect, trust and loyalty. 

PDFC covers a wide range of topics including personal finance, economic well being, employment, issues surrounding alcohol and alcohol misuse, sexual health, human rights issues and personal safety.

Careers information and guidance is given at key times.

The whole PDFC programme is designed to help students acquire the skills necessary to make and implement decisions about themselves, the world around them, education, training and employment.

Below are some Reports and Case Studies that have been produced as a result of Newent Community School and Sixth Form Centre's involvement in key areas.  We hope you find them of interest.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
