The Foundation (Post 16) Welsh Baccalaureate is based on the essentialness of developing the skills of young people in Wales, to increase their employability options. Therefore, skills development along with knowledge acquisition is essential. The Foundation (Post 16) Welsh Baccalaureate must attempt to equip learners with relevant theory in conjunction with opportunities for experiential learning. It is only with experiential learning that young people will be able to develop their skills through a process of planning, doing and reflecting. It is also vital to ensure that each learner leaves Post 16 education with a minimum competency at level 1 in all 7 skills.
It is anticipated that this Foundation (Post 16) Skills Induction Resource would be used in the first half term of learners Foundation (Post 16) Welsh Baccalaureate course and that it could last 11 hours (or more).
