What are Alternative Pathways?
Alternative Pathways (also called Alternative Provision and AP) offers a different educational route for some young people allowing them to access a broad curriculum which appropriately meets their needs and gives them the best chance of progressing.
Access to a broader curriculum and accreditation's that many alternative providers offer, creates wider opportunities for some young people to succeed and progress on to the next steps in their education, training or employment.
How does it work?
In most cases the Alternative Pathway provider will offer vocational pathways based around a core of English and Maths and personal and social education.
Many providers have additional links with work-based learning centres and networks with local employers that allow young people to experience regular work placements and enhanced work-related learning as well as supported progression on to Pre-Apprenticeship or full Apprenticeship programmes.
Where can I find out more?
