Dear S4 Parent/carer,
Your child has been issued with their course choice form for next year as they progress into S5. This year the form contains more options to choose from to ensure they are on their correct individual learning pathway.
New pathways include National Progression Awards (NPA’s) and Foundation Apprenticeships (FA’s). NPA’s are equivalent to higher level without an exam at the end and FA’s are higher level without an exam and include a work placement in their chosen field.
I have provided information regarding all the choices available on the Alford Academy website which can be found at Alford Academy Website: Pupil area: Course Choice.
As highlighted in the recent S4 parents evening letter, a course choice information session will be delivered at the academy on Tuesday 19th February, at 5pm or 7:30pm, whichever is most convenient.
I look forward to seeing you there to provide more information,
